"THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND"

From the December 1959 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The pessimistic conviction that heaven is always elsewhere or comes later in one's experience and that earth is a "vale of tears" or, at most, of only ephemeral value to mankind would prevent the full enjoyment of the moment and the opportunities at hand. A proper reading of the Gospels would contradict these theories.
