Progress in the College Organizations

"Every condition implied by the great Master, every promise fulfilled, was loving and spiritual, urging a state of consciousness that leaves the minor tones of so-called material life and abides in Christlikeness" (Message to The Mother Church for 1902 by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 9). University students find real adventure as they seek to approximate the Master's "every condition" in campus life. The following reports indicate how the members of Christian Science organizations at colleges and universities are leaving the "minor tones" and demonstrating some measure of Christlikeness.

An organization member from a large New England university writes:

"Coming from a small-town high school to a large city university sometimes means quite a change, but I made the adjustment without fear. It was at the Christian Science organization meetings that I first began to feel very much at home in university life, and my inner peace was established. Also, I became very grateful for an understanding of harmony and brotherhood which I had gained through Christian Science, since this was my first experience in dormitory living with students of many different religious backgrounds.
