Mission of the Christian Science Periodicals

A LINE from a familiar hymn loved by Christians reads, "Watchman, tell us of the night." In developing the answer to the question, its stanzas present successively the promise of day, the dawn of the light, the universal fulfillment through Christ's coming.

The character of the messenger may be learned from the following passage from Isaiah: "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!" And the first to see the messenger are the watchmen, described in the next verse, who "shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing." Let us see how this description fits the character of the Christian Science periodicals. The Christian Science Monitor, the great exponent of clean journalism, brings to all whose attention it arrests in a waiting, questioning world, good news of all nations and races, institutions and governments; and it often brings to receptive thought the dawn of the light of Truth, in which are seen the reality of God's spiritual creation, of good, and of the powerlessness of evil.
