BUY AN EXTRA BOND CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCHES A selection from Paul's letter to the Philippians was the Golden Text in the Sunday Lesson-Sermon on "Soul and Body" in all branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston. "For our conver- sation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile body, that it ma, y be fashioned like unto' his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself."' These verses from Leviticus were in- cluded in the Lesson-Sermon : "Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the Lord. If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my command- ments, and do them; Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit And I will set my tabernacle among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people." "Man is the expression of Soul," wrote Mary Baker Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." She also said, "Spiritual man is the image or idea of God, and idea~ which cannot be lost nor seperated from its divine Principle." --ON TO VICTORY--~- CEMETERY RECEIVES GROOMING Last Sunday morning members of the American Legion and a group of Avalon citizens passed up the oppor- COMMUNITY CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH.
