Seeking Higher Ground

Much of the distress and upheaval so apparent in world affairs today may be attributed not only to a lack of understanding among nations and peoples, but most of all to a lack of a definite understanding of God and of man's relationship to Him. If all men were honestly striving for more spirituality, striving to obtain a better knowledge of God, divine Principle, how much of the discord evidenced on every hand would melt away, and what a delightful world we should be living in!

Students of Christian Science are grateful that they are having a part in bringing to mankind a better understanding of God and His perfect creation, and of what He does for all. This is being very definitely accomplished through the activities of The Mother Church and its branches throughout the world, especially through the published word as sent forth from The Christian Science Publishing Society in Boston. The truth about God and His creation, as revealed in Christian Science, is thus made available to all who desire surcease from the difficulties that would continually annoy and harass them. This does not mean that one's problems suddenly disappear merely through the acceptance of Christian Science and its teachings; but it does mean that one is enabled to rejoice that he has found a satisfactory means of solution of his problems. Because of the very nature of God, one finds that there is always room for a larger, fuller, better understanding of Him as infinite good. This unfoldment goes on continually, because of the limitless nature of infinity. Mrs. Eddy writes, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," (p. 258), "God expresses in man the infinite idea forever developing itself, broadening and rising higher and higher from a boundless basis."
