"Earth's preparatory school"

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, declares (p. 486), "Earth's preparatory school must be improved to the utmost." This "preparatory school" is open to all of earth's children. The needed instruction is indicated in part in these words in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 310): "To impersonalize scientifically the material sense of existence—rather than cling to personality—is the lesson of to-day."

Mortals learn by experience; hence, as our Leader says (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 11), "Sickness is the schoolmaster, leading you to Christ; first to faith in Christ; next to belief in God as omnipotent; and finally to the understanding of God and man in Christian Science, whereby you learn that God is good, and in Science man is His likeness, the forever reflection of goodness."
