FROM THE EDITORS

In the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, its first article states, "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They, endowed with reason and conscience, should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood." The declaration continues, "Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms... without distinction of any kind.... Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person."

Two years ago, over six hundred religious leaders whose congregations comprised over one hundred million people in eighty-eight countries participated in one of the early World Days of Prayer for Human Rights. This year, beginning December 10, everyone is again invited to pray during Human Rights Week. In this Christian Science Sentinel, the article "Human rights—a higher view needed," and the Herald broadcast "One presence, blessing us all," illustrate the power of genuine Christianity to maintain man's God-given rights.
