The teachings of Christ Jesus, as emphasized in Christian Science, are calling with clarion voices to awake the world from the lethargy of pride, prejudice, poverty, and pain, and from all that tends to rupture the interests of humanity, and these teachings will ultimately and wisely unite all nations and creeds in one great world-wide brotherhood, under the government of divine Love and harmony.

In her "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 224), our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy, says: "We should go forth into life with the smallest expectations, but with the largest patience; with a keen relish for and appreciation of everything beautiful, great, and good; but with a temper so genial that the friction of the world shall not wear upon our sensibilities; with an equanimity so settled that no passing breath nor accidental disturbance shall agitate or ruffle it; with a charity broad enough to cover the whole world's evil, and sweet enough to neutralize what is bitter in it,—determined not to be offended when no wrong is meant, nor even when it is, unless the offense be against God." It is in the light of such exalted teaching as this that we rejoice to forget "those things which are behind" and to honor true greatness wherever found.
