Rise to Mind's occasion

In 1862, during the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln wrote to Congress: “The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise—with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.”

Just four years later, Mary Baker Eddy discovered Christian Science. This discovery left the “dogmas of the past” to offer a new, inspired view of Jesus’ healing methods. It was the promised Comforter, a demonstrable Science that could empower people struggling with the aftereffects of the war and address any other problem, including the need for physical healing.
