Should You Get Involved?

[For young adults]

Just how far should you get involved in dealing with the social, political, and moral problems that beset our age? Is the conspicuous noncommitment of many young people simply their answer to the policy of reticence and noninvolvement they may have seen in their elders?

The approach of the student of Christian Science to this whole arena of involvement is unique in human history and very effective. For he is not just a single human being nor the member of a small group battling valiantly the whole spectrum of social ills. He is not just a social theoretician trying out this plan or that, hoping against hope that something will work.

The Christian Scientist understands that all men, including him-self, are in truth the perfect reflection of that all-pervasive Love which is God. This is the idea of Love and Principle which impelled Christ Jesus to dedicate his life to the service of his Father. It was the guiding force in the life of Mrs. Eddy, who taught men that even in this age Truth is the one great compelling spiritual force in the world.
