Challenging Universal Indifference

In her inspiring letter to The Christian Science Board of Lectureship, the beloved Leader of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, writes (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 248), "You go forth to face the foe with loving look and with the religion and philosophy of labor, duty, liberty, and love, to challenge universal indifference, chance, and creeds."

While this declaration of purpose was written to the Board of Lectureship, every student of Christian Science may well take it to heart, ponder it, and strive to exemplify it in his daily life. To the extent that he succeeds in this high purpose not only will his experience be progressive and abundantly fruitful, but he will be a beacon light for those "millions of unprejudiced minds—simple seekers for Truth, weary wanderers, athirst in the desert," who, Mrs. Eddy says, "are waiting and watching for rest and drink" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 570).
