Activities for the Armed Services
For some people military service is their first experience in group living. A young Christian Scientist was having a difficult time adjusting to the rigors of Navy recruit training. He was away from home for the first time and had never before been forced to rely on his own demonstration of spiritual truths.
Barracks living had become trying. Petty jealousies and rivalries had developed. The recruit had become resentful over having to live with men he considered socially, culturally, and morally inferior. Furthermore, he hesitated to live his religion openly for fear of being considered odd. Under these circumstances he was finding it hard to be a Christian Scientist.
He contacted a Christian Science Minister for the Armed Services who impressed upon him the importance of taking his stand for what he knew was right. The sailor then picked up his courage and began the regular study of the Lesson-Sermon, found in the Christian Science Quarterly. When possible, he attended the weekly services held at the base. Soon he gained a more spiritual outlook and could see his shipmates as expressions of God and not as sinning mortals.
