GRADUATION AND PROGRESS

At this time of year many young men and women are graduating from schools and colleges, starting upon careers for which they have been preparing through years of study. Graduation indicates not so much the end of the acquisition of knowledge as the beginning of independent progress in demonstrating what has been learned. And according to Christian Science, progress never ends, because the unfoldment of good is infinite. Mary Baker Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 82): "Man is the offspring and idea of the Supreme Being, whose law is perfect and infinite. In obedience to this law, man is forever unfolding the endless beatitudes of Being; for he is the image and likeness of infinite Life, Truth, and Love."

In these words of our Leader's we have the scientific basis for demonstrating God's law of progress in a practical way. Opportunities for spiritual progress are endless, because opportunities for expressing good are endless. And when one associates progress strictly with the opportunity to express the nature of God, he will go forward in useful service to mankind without interruption.
