NUMBER 1.

Unchain the Truth

The church year commencing in Octo-
ber is now with us and we hope to do
even a greater work the next year than
We have in the past: During the past
year we have given out in literature
something ke So000 worth of books,
periodicals aud. viher educational work
in connection with the propaganda of our
church, and the fruit of this service is
manifest throughout the entire world,
more or less. It is a source of thank-
fulness to us that God has used us, and
blessed us in this cause.

On November 4 our annual class
teaching will commence in our private
parlors, 1329 M St., N. W.. teaching
those who wish to perfect themselves as
healers more perfectly than can be given
in books. This course of teaching in-
cludes how to teach, how to lecture and
how to heal in accordance with all of
the various methods.

Chain of Golden Thoughts

October

PAULINA B. SABIN

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews, xi, I.

We should act with as much energy as those who expect everything from themselves; and we should pray with as much earnestness as those who expect everything from God.-Colton.

Works without faith are like a fish without water, it wants the element it should live in. A building without a basis cannot stand; faith is the foundation, and every good action is as a stone. laid.-Feltham.

Faith is the subtle chain

That binds us to the Infinite; the voice
Of a deep life within, that will remain
Until we crowd it thence.

-Mrs. E. O. Smith.

Therefore, love and believe; for works will follow spontaneous,
Even as the day does the sun; the right from the good is an offspring,
Love in a bodily shape; and Christian works are no more than
Animate faith and love, as flowers are the animate spring-time.

-Longfellow.

When we use the term faith, we mean understanding of the Truth. It is by the application of the perfect understanding and affirmation of the truth that all great work is done through what is termed metaphysical lines. The understanding that God is all and that man is Hist image and likeness is the faith which moves the mountains and accomplishes everything.-Bishop Sabin.
