Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

Great Britain and Ireland.

The events of the past year have brought with them new opportunities for service. We are passing through a most momentous period of human history, but we are not unduly disturbed by the outward events. We are more concerned with the vast changes that are taking place in human consciousness, changes which are breaking down old landmarks, plowing up barren wastes, cultivating fruitful soil, and making ready for the great harvest of humanity. Ezekiel called it a time of "shaking." Jeremiah spoke of it as a "time of . . . trouble." Joel wrote of it as "a day of clouds and of thick darkness," but Jesus, with greater spiritual perception, said, "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

We Christian Scientists, like many others, find our usefulness increased in these momentous hours. In the chemicalization through which the world is now passing, we can stand firm and unafraid, knowing that our Redeemer liveth and that our redemption is at hand.
