MY SELF AND MY NEIGHBOR

From the December 1930 issue of The Christian Science Journal


TRULY it may be said that we are concerned with our neighbor more broadly, more universally, now than ever before in human history. From the struggling masses of industrialism and immigration, back of this humanitarian movement and that, there gleams the invincible ideal of brotherhood; and despite the seeming clash of national will on will, and the Babel of materialism, the rallying trumpet call of a mighty social compunction is calling as never before, Men and brethren, what shall we do? In all this challenge of change, crumbling convictions, newly dawning certainties, we are fast learning that we cannot keep the great Christian second commandment if it is severed from the first.
