"Forget self in laboring for mankind"

There is perhaps nothing in human experience that suggests more unhappiness than the feeling that one is a stranger, alone, without a home or home ties. Not having the right concept of home, many have become discouraged and perplexed, searching in vain along the barren ways of material existence for a satisfying environment. Is it not here that Christian Science has found countless thousands of us? Have we not followed some alluring thought until we have found our hopes defeated, our wanderings fruitless? In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy has written (p. 322): "The sharp experiences of belief in the supposititious life of matter, as well as our disappointments and ceaseless woes, turn us like tired children to the arms of divine Love. Then we begin to learn Life in divine Science."

To all who are depressed by the confusing testimony of the material senses, Christian Science brings a comforting message of hope and healing. It reveals the great truths of being which liberate from sin, disease, and discord, and by its simple, direct, and demonstrable teaching brings surcease from human sorrows. This purely spiritual religion, when understood, awakens thought from the belief of creation as material to an understanding that creation is spiritual. The Bible declares, "In him we live, and move, and have our being;" hence we find our real home to be in spiritual consciousness, perfect, eternal, and immune from invasion by any strange thoughts.
