"Let us lay aside every weight"

THERE is hardly a young or even a grown-up person who has not looked forward to seeing an airship rise. There is much that must be thought of and carried out by the crew in charge before the airship can rise and proceed towards its destination. Every necessary preparation must be completed and superfluous baggage left behind. These preliminary steps are necessary. And when all is in readiness, there remains yet one vital step that must be taken before the airship can proceed on its way—namely, the casting off of the ropes that attach it to its moorings.

Let us regard this modern experience in the light of Christian Science and we shall see that several valuable lessons can be learned from it. When we first take a trip by air we know that new wonders await us, and that a wider panorama will stretch out before us as the airship rises. We shall be introduced to perspectives hitherto unknown.
