Looking Forward

In another four years. Christian Science, discovered by Mrs. Eddy in 1866, will enter its second century of service to the world. Much has been accomplished in the first century, and this is but a prelude to what is yet to come. This does not mean that Christian Science will ever be improved upon. Mrs. Eddy's discovery is complete and final. What will be improved is the ability of Christian Scientists to understand this discovery more spiritually and to practice it more scientifically. To them, this divine Science is the Christianity that Jesus taught and demonstrated.

The application of this Science is an art. The ability to heal through spiritual means involves certain attitudes and aptitudes, skills and practice. And although the Science itself, being absolute and divine, never varies and can never fail, success is not always the case with those who apply it. Mrs. Eddy writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 205): "Christian Science is the full idea of its divine Principle, God; it is forever based on Love, and it is demonstrated by perfect rules; it is unerring. Hence health, holiness, immortality, are its natural effects. The practitioner may fail, but the Science never."
