Very truly,

6Corner-stone Laid at Concord

    Beloved Brethren: — This day drops down upon the glories of summer; it is a glad day, in attune with faith’s 9fond trust. We live in an age of Love’s divine adventure to be All-in-all. This day is the natal hour of my lone earth life; and for all mankind to-day hath its gloom 12and glory: it endureth all things; it points to the new birth, heaven here, the struggle over; it profits by the past and joys in the present — to-day lends a new-born 15beauty to holiness, patience, charity, love.

    Having all faith in Christian Science, we must have faith in whatever manifests love for God and man. The 18burden of proof that Christian Science is Science rests on Christian Scientists. The letter without the spirit is dead: it is the Spirit that heals the sick and the 21sinner — that makes the heart tender, faithful, true. Most men and women talk well, and some practise what they say.

24    God has blessed and will bless this dear band of brethren. He has laid the chief corner-stone of the temple which to-day you commemorate, to-morrow complete, and there27after dedicate to Truth and Love. O may your temple and all who worship therein stand through all time for God and humanity!
