Annual Meeting and the Sermon on the Mount
The Annual Meeting of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, on June 2 is news not just for Christian Scientists or for merchants and hoteliers in the Boston area. It's good news of substantial importance for the world. It attests the ongoing vigor of the Church Mrs. Eddy founded to preserve and foster God's revelation of the Science of being to mankind.
To an observer at the time of her great discovery, Mrs. Eddy's life may have appeared headed on a dead-end course of invalidism, desertion, and penury, but the very direness of her predicament was prelude to a spiritual breakthrough of incalculable significance.
To many observers today, humanity's collective prospects appear equally bleak. The world's very survival seems menaced by ecological havoc and the threat of nuclear war. Annual Meeting brings opportunity to affirm the capacity of the Christ, Truth, to reject the tragic finale mortal mind would assign to the human drama and replace it with an entirely new scene—mankind's triumphant emergence into the light of spiritual reality.
