"Lack of time"

At stated times new boards of directors are elected in our churches, new committees formed, and members of the churches are appointed or elected to serve in the several positions and branches of the work; therefore it is right and also our duty to hold ourselves ready when called upon, and willing always to do what we can, either as members or officers. Christian Science organizations are growing rapidly in every part of the world, and not only does the church work require our metaphysical support, but as students of Christian Science we have need of that spiritual broadening and uplifting which we receive when we enter into active service.

"Lack of time" is an argument of error which might be voiced by some of us, if we are not ready to refute it and ever watchful to "stand porter at the door of thought" (Science and Health, p. 392); but divine Love will never allow us to think that we have been asked to do something beyond our power, for we know that "with God all things are possible," and that we, as children of God, know no limitation. We must know, too, that God rules us, and when we are needed in some branch of the church work, if we realize that divine Mind is governing us, we will find it possible to perform lovingly any act which will aid in uplifting mankind to a better and grander understanding of Truth.
