Christian Science: A Religion of Doing

Originally published in the 1909 pamphlet titled Christian Science: A Religion of Doing

Son of God! Saviour of men! Thy name 
Shall be the copious matter of my song.

I ASSUME it to be the earnest desire of Christian people all around the globe, so to concentrate and unify Christian thought and Christian endeavor that the highest and best there is in them may, without let or hindrance, be fixed upon the promotion of the reign of righteousness, the establishment of the kingdom of God in this world. To this consummation Christian Scientists are devoted by every sense of obedience, gratitude, and duty. I appear before you tonight in no spirit of proselytism or mere denominational aggrandizement, but in the very essence of the great commandment, "Love thy neighbor as thyself," to bring to you the story of the best that ever came into their lives, that it may impart a new joy to yours; not to thrust it upon you, but simply to hold it out, in, the Master's name, as something for you to weigh in the scales of your best judgment, in your opportunity, your environment, your conscience, and to make your own, if you will.
