TO many who have been mustered out of the armed forces comes the question of rehabilitation, either the return to one's former place and position or the seeking of a new one, possibly under considerable handicap. How can Christian Science be applied to this necessary adjustment? In the ninety–first Psalm we read, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." Reasoning from the basis of man's existence as God's spiritual idea, dwelling in Mind, Spirit, one inevitably experiences the care and provision of God, divine Mind.

During their period of service, many students of Christian Science found help from their religion in working out a correct sense of place. The understanding that they thus gained of man's eternal relationship to God is just as applicable to the solution of postwar unemployment. It is important to realize that while the affairs of men and nations are temporal, spiritual man is eternally placed in the divine order. No one else can fill the particular niche that Love has prepared for each of His ideas in His spiritual universe. It is our sense of place that needs to be spiritualized in order that we may understand that we are never the victims of chance or circumstance; that our place and work are never at the mercy of mortal mind's false beliefs. Thus we begin to see that man is now and forever placed by divine Love, unceasingly employed in the reflection of infinite intelligence, his future filled with the peace and harmony which an all–loving Father has prepared for His beloved son.
