When human faith and hope were ready to burst...

From the November 1907 issue of The Christian Science Journal


When human faith and hope were ready to burst the fetters of long-time bondage, a handful of brave men and women rose superior to the ties of family and country and came to these shores seeking freedom to worship God. Their bold venture finds a parallel in the experience of Abraham, who for the sake of a pure religion left home and country and became the father of a great race to which all mankind is indebted for its grand theistic literature,—the words of patriarch and prophet that are to-day as never before helping to work out the divine purpose in the uplifting of mankind.
