"Do the work of an evangelist"

How the light of courage and spiritual uplift can flood our thinking when hope—gentle, radiant hope—is bidden to enter our mental homes and throw open the shutters! This hope is never forlorn, for it is first of all Christian, and thus ever consonant with the expectation of good. Many pictures in magazines and newspapers these days portray the utter hopelessness and despair of war criminals and victims alike returning to devastated cities and facing the seemingly insuperable problem of rehabilitation.

Should not the Christian Scientist, who has proved at least in some measure that "earth has no sorrow that Love cannot cure" (Christian Science Hymnal, No. 40), yearn to bring to stricken humanity everywhere the hope, yes, the promise, of present-day deliverance from all inharmony? He should leave no stone unturned in his effort wisely to broadcast to receptive hearts the glad message of Immanuel, or God, good, with us. His is the privilege of letting his light so shine before men that hope will be restored to the hopeless, and beams of healing truth will find entrance into many fear-darkened hearts.
