A College Student Writes

What Christian Science Offers Youth

"How does he adjust?" School counselors, parents, and other professional people interested in youth frequently pose this question. They test the receptivity of young people to change—watching carefully when they board the bus for camp, enter high school, begin to date, go on to college—always wondering if they will adapt wisely to new situations.

Christian Science, though, takes a young person by the hand and leads him safely through periods of adjustment. Through this Science we learn the nothingness of limiting, mortal beliefs and gain an understanding of the truth that man is the reflection of God and is therefore as steadfastly perfect as the unwavering and eternal I am. He has always been God's idea and is not subject to material adjustments. We must realize that each situation is an opportunity for further development of our understanding and more mature application of the truths we know, In other words, adjustments of adolescence, which are seemingly serious problems for some, are but opportunities for growth in grace and knowledge.
