From the December 1976 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Look first, in peace, within the secret place— that lowly stillness of the heart that tells wordlessly of shepherd-listening grace— and greet the Most High. Baubles, bells, beribboned gifts or decorated trees— if you have none of these, are you deprived of Christmas joy and cheer? Then seek again its depth, all the year, every season, seek the hidden scent of buds—the undeveloped thoughts.
