Our Field is the World

Although healing the sick seems to present the largest field of activity for Christian Scientists, it is not the only means by which they can help their fellows. Every walk in life offers unlimited opportunity to reform the sinner, to comfort the sorrowing, to cheer the faltering; and opportunities for these Christly ministrations are not confined to the practitioner who devotes his entire time to the work.

The business man is constantly appealed to for advice, for encouragement, for financial assistance. It is no uncommon thing for him to see some friend or business associate on the verge of financial disaster, or threatened with physical collapse; or, perhaps, under the stress of financial need, about to "turn a sharp corner," or worse yet, commit some act which is absolutely criminal. All these conditions need healing, and the gentle, loving, Christly counsel and example of the Christian Science business man, should point the way to relief.
