Facing Our Problem

The student endeavoring to progress in the understanding of Christian Science in an environment unkindly disposed toward the truth as discovered and taught by our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, may think another home, or possibly another city, would help to bring more rapid growth. One laboring with sickness or some other claim of mortal mind which is slowly yielding to the operation of divine Love, may also be inclined to attribute the tardy demonstration to the thoughts entertained by friends and relatives who do not yet understand that the power of God can heal every discordant condition.

Biblical accounts recording Jesus' works do not indicate that the Master considered it necessary to remove the one to be healed to another location in order to effect the demonstration. Rather do they tend to show that the Way-shower, and his disciples as well, performed the healing wherever the afflicted one happened to be. Lazarus was raised from the grave right at the place where he lay, and the one lame from birth was healed right at the gate of the temple called Beautiful, where he sat.
