MAN'S RIGHT PLACE

[Of Special Interest to Young People]

Christian Scientists are familiar with the Bible verse (Gen. 1:27), "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him," and also with the statements Mary Baker Eddy makes in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 515): "Man is the family name for all ideas,—the sons and daughters of God. All that God imparts moves in accord with Him, reflecting goodness and power." These divine facts give them a basis for demonstrating harmonious human relationships.

One student of Christian Science, when she reached high school, found that some of the other pupils in her class had views about right and wrong which differed greatly from those she had been taught. Their habits of speech and action were not in accordance with the standards she as a Christian Scientist endeavored to maintain in daily living: therefore, she made no effort to find friends among her new classmates. Although rarely absent from school up to this time, she suddenly had several physical problems to overcome. She missed some of her lessons and had no opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities. She began to feel lonely and unhappy and soon believed that she was not in her right place while attending this school.
