For university and college students

What your life can mean to others

It's natural for college students to feel that individually they have something to offer mankind in the way of hope and progress. But where can an ardent, intelligent thinker find the answers that satisfy his yearnings? Christian Science organizations at colleges and universities are on many campuses to help meet this need for college students, showing the satisfying Science of being that brings forth peace and progress. And it is one's example as a Christian Scientist that can be a light to others on campus.

Two examples come to my thought—a young man and a young woman who both were touched by the lives of Christian Scientists on university campuses. The young man, who knew little about Christian Science, was just graduating from high school. He wanted to help the world in some meaningful way, yet he was floundering in his choice of a career. Then he met another student in high school whose inner poise and reassuring manner were very attractive to him. The friend gave him a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. He was so interested in its logic that when he started college he decided to attend the weekly Christian Science college organization meetings held on his campus. He liked the decisiveness and intelligence that the members of that organization expressed. And soon Christian Science became his way of life. He was thinking more and more from a spiritual basis.

That was many years ago. He is now actively employed in an industry that is working with advanced technology. The nature of his work requires that he keep constantly in thought the true meaning of world peace—the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God. And he has opportunities in his work to share with others his understanding of God's ability to hold man at all times in a condition of peace and harmony.
