I took no stock in that policy intent on obeying the divine impulse. Now they depend upon the rules of this practice for healing, but having lost the spirit of Christian Science and finding the letter inadequate to sustain a genuine practice they hide the book from their patients. it would heal and the students it would enlighten .
