A Christmas Gift
by Gilbert Carpenter
One Christmas the students of Eugene H. Greene (a teacher of Christian Science) felt a wonderful uplift. Then they learned that he had consciously sent out Christly love as his gift to them all. Since he followed Mrs. Eddy in everything he did, he must have known that this was her own way of expressing thoughtful consideration, in return for all the gifts that were made to her by students and friends. She worked to send out a special spiritual blessing at that time. Her Christmas wishes, therefore, were not an idle gesture, but a practical demonstration of God’s healing presence and power.
