Easter Services – 1

     The editor of The Christian Science Journal said that at three o’clock, the hour for the church service proper, the pastor, Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, accompanied by Rev. D. A. Easton, who was announced to preach the sermon, came on the platform. The pastor introduced Mr. Easton as follows:

     Friends:The homesick traveller in foreign lands greets with joy a familiar face. I am constantly homesick for heaven. In my long journeyings I have met one who comes from the place of my own sojourning for many years,the Congregational Church. He is a graduate of Bowdoin College and of Andover Theological School. He has left his old church, as I did, from a yearning of the heart; because he was not satisfied with a manlike God, but wanted to become a Godlike man. He found that the new wine could not be put into old bottles without bursting them, and he came to us.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.177:21-9)
