From the December 1893 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis. 319:17-320:2

Will all the dear Christian Scientists accept my tender greetings for the forthcoming holidays and grant me this request,— let the present season pass without one gift to me?

Our church edifice must be built in 1894. Take thither thy saintly offerings and lay them in the outstretched hand of God. The object to be won affords ample opportunity for the grandest achievement to which Christian Scientists can direct attention, and feel themselves alone among the stars.

No doubt must intervene between the promise and event; faith and resolve are friends to Truth, seize them, trust the Divine providence, push upward our prayer in stone and God will give the benediction.
