Recent political and economic events have had their effects in the remotest corners of the earth, and thousands of people have seen the course of their lives changed, their planned careers swept aside by the necessity for rendering services of an entirely different character from that which they had planned or hoped for. For some, fresh fields of endeavor offering wider scope have opened. For others the future may seem full of uncertainty and insecurity.

To all, the teachings of Christian Science sound a clarion call of hope and certainty. In "Miscellaneous Writings" our Leader says (p. 173): "If God is Mind and fills all space, is everywhere, matter is nowhere and sin is obsolete. If Mind, God, is all-power and all-presence, man is not met by another power and presence, that—obstructing his intelligence—pains, fetters, and befools him. The perfection of man is intact; whence, then, is something besides Him that is not the counterpart but the counterfeit of man's creator? Surely not from God, for He made man in His own likeness." God is good. God is All. God is omnipotent. Man, created by the Word of God, in the image and likeness of his Maker, as the first chapter of Genesis informs us, cannot do other than reflect God— that is, express his creator. Therefore man, the only real man, is spiritual and Godlike, and for him good and good only is assured.
