Brotherhood and a newspaper

Unique in the world stands The Christian Science Monitor. As the book of Proverbs says, "As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country." Prov. 25:25.

Informative, reliable, intuitively presented articles give Monitor readers a grasp of other people's needs and challenges so that our understanding of man's native brotherhood may come into effective focus. Speaking of brotherly love, the writer of Hebrews says, "Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body." Heb. 13:3. Although the Monitor is a newspaper, it also may truly be a harbinger of the brotherhood of mankind, waiting to be revealed.

The Monitor stands as a beacon to draw thought away from self to a higher sense of sharing. "Look not every man on his own things," the Bible says, "but every man also on the things of others." Phil. 2:4. The Monitor can be a most useful tool in the healthy fulfillment of this divine imperative. It stretches the bands of our love. It expands the limits of our compassion, our genuine care and concern for humanity. Humanity is what the Monitor is all about.
