From racism to the recognition of true identity

Progress in human affairs appears by degrees, through improved concepts or beliefs. An infant learns to crawl before he learns to walk. We pick up arithmetic before we master calculus. The stagecoach has given way to jet travel.

In each of these illustrations the second stage indicates an advanced level of understanding and accomplishment. Limited concepts yield to progressive enlightenment.

In the area of race relations also, the irresistible propulsion of God's law of progress can be seen. Legislation in the United States has done much to improve inequities in its educational system. The equal employment and housing acts have dispelled some of the shadows of unemployment and unfair restriction. Such steps are indications of a greater awareness of a fundamental spiritual fact underlying creation—one God as the Father of all.
