"The time for thinkers"

From the September 1967 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The greatest human need under stress of circumstances is ever for right thinking. In a spiritually mental approach to human problems we discover that divine consciousness, or Spirit, meets the human need. Christian Science teaches us that thought traveling along the straight line of Spirit is natural and always safe; it is in keeping with God and is reflected in our human experience in ways that are harmonious and good.

On the other hand, thinking based on the unreliable testimony of matter and the material senses shuts the door that leads to Spirit, God; and we should not be surprised if the result of such thinking is our sense of inadequacy when a problem fails to yield to our personal efforts.

It is never too late, however, to resort to a higher sense than matter affords, that is, to reach out unreservedly to God, Spirit, to reestablish our conscious unity with Him and His harmonious creation. The divine Mind that is God answers this mental call with spiritual evidence and spiritual ideas. Mrs. Eddy writes, "God's thoughts are perfect and eternal, are substance and Life."
