From the July 1916 issue of The Christian Science Journal

SOMETIMES in the experience of the Christian Scientist the words of the Master to his disciples, "Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while," seem to be an insistent appeal to the student, a call to depart from the material sense of things for closer communion with divine Truth and Love. A response to this call is sure to bring a clearer understanding of God and of man's unity with Him, which so refreshes and invigorates thought that one is enabled to go forth with renewed energy because of a more spiritual view.
