RADIO PROGRAM No. 157 - You Can Defeat Poverty

QUESTIONER: A great deal of human effort is being expended in the attempt to wipe out poverty. But what about the individual who is up against it? Sometimes it seems that in spite of honest efforts, he is unable to find work. The result is frustration and discouragement. What can a person do in that kind of situation to break loose from poverty?

SPEAKER: First, let me say that Christian Scientists, in common with others, are concerned about the general problems of poverty. We support humane efforts to wipe out poverty. But from the individual's point of view, the way he can counteract poverty is to turn to the one inexhaustible source of riches that he can really depend on, a source that will not run out.

QUESTIONER: Well, that sounds like Utopia. Where can we find a source like that?
