'The Signs of Heaven'
Written for The Christian Science Monitor
It may seem that comparativey few of the desires which motivate
a person’s prayers and actions during his human journey are ever at
tained. But almost anyone can look back across the years and wonder
what would have become of him, and where he would be now, if some
of his intense desires had actually come to pass.
The prophet Jeremiah recorded God’s warning against material
ways which sometimes occasion disappointments, seeming defeats,
and frustrations. “Thus saith the Lord,” he wrote (Jeremiah 10:2),
“Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs
of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.”
Not until the writer had been studying Christian Science for some
years did she begin, in the light of its teachings, to recognize “the
way of the heathen,” the solid walls which rose up repeatedly to block
a certain line of procedure that she deemed good and desirable. One
day, after a particularly disappointing setback, she opened the Bible
for comfort, and her attention was arrested by the verse from Jeremiah
already quoted. In a flash of spiritual revelation she saw that “heath
en” can be defined as material thought. Such thinking knows nothing
of God, but looks to matter for evidence of both good and evil, arriv
ing at all conclusions and evaluating all reality by what the material
senses present. Obviously, this mortal state of thought will cause
dismay, because it cannot possibly understand the workings of divine
Mind or recognize the operation of divine Principle.
• « • •
One soon Learns that outward experience is the product of his
thinking. Therefore, instead of being dismayed over seeming defeats,
he should take a keener inward look. Are his motives spotless? Is his
purpose big and unselfish? Is he willing to see others succeed? Does the
solution he desires mean so much to him that no other outcome is
acceptable? Honest answers to these questions may reveal the reason
behind many unhappy situations.

In the Christian Science textbook, “Science and Health with Key
to the Scriptures,” Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of
of Christian Science, writes (p. 30), “We cannot choose for ourselves,
but must work out our salvation in the way Jesus taught.” Jesus’ way
of deliverance from all that is earthly and mortal is contained in his
familiar words (John 5:30), “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I
hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because I seek not mine own
will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” The secret of
unshakable peace of mind lies in this complete surrender of any at
tempt to be something or to do something apart from God.
In “Miscellaneous Writings” Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 10): “The good
cannot lose their God, their help in times of trouble. If they mistake
the divine command, they will recover it, countermand their order,
retrace their steps, and reinstate His orders, more assured to press on
Let us never be dismayed at “the signs of heaven”—whatever
seems to be defeat. God is never defeated, and His expression, man,
cannot be. A better cleansing of our motives, a holier purpose, a
more steadfast trust that God will place us where He needs us most,
can open unsuspected doors upon vistas of true happiness. ,

One of the most precious of life

Ecclesiastes IX, 10 says, “For

A new friend is as new wine,

“A friend must never be IN

But that does not mean that you

“A man that hath friends,” says

ANOTHER thing to remember,

At Ogallala there are nearly 300 persons who work in the town
but live elsewhere. They commute daily to Ogallala because there
is no housing available there.
The Chamber of Commerce has sent a letter to each of these
persons, asking them the size of house they need, the amount of
rent they would be willing to pay, whether they are interested
in buying and about what price they feel they could afford.
The data will be compiled and a community-wide effort will
be made to provide housing for those who need it, the-Keith

inis is a most striking example
of the evil power of rumor. And
I’m sure that when you read this
unusual article i n PICTURE
WEEK, you’ll agree with me to
i think twice before believing any
I word-of-mouth stories,
Rumor can be one of the most
damaging of all human failings. It;
can ruin reputations, cause panic,
and even start riots I’ve just fin
ished reading a very disturbing
article in the current issue of PIC
TURE WEEK Magazine, which j
showed how a terrible race riot was
touched oif by rumor.
It began as a traffic jam on a
Detroit bridge, when two cars j
locked bumpers. One contained a i
wh’te couple, the other a Negro
couple and their baby. All four I
passengers got out to argue and
the people in other cars craned;
their necks to see what was going
on But because it was a bright
glarey day, the drivers of autos ,
facing one direction saw a differ-1
ent scene than those facing the
other way. From one line of cars,1
according to PICTURE WEEK, it
looked like a Negro facing a white j
man and woman. From the second
line, it appeared as if a white man
was argumg with a Negro attack
ing the white man’s wife. Some
said the man was armed with a
knife and. a little later, people
were saying that there was a wave
of knife-wielding Negroes attack-;
ing whites. From the other direc-j
tion, the rumors involved the white
man and the Negro baby. Some
passed the word that he had
thrown the child off the bridge and
that oolice had arrived and were
siding with the white man. By
the time the rumor had reached
the Negro section of town, it in-1
eluded an alleged reign of terror
on the Negro population. A riot
was under way, and when it was
over, 34 were dead and hundreds I
more injured. j
