Revelation and Responsibility

From the September 1975 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When we read in the history books of the people whose lives illumine the past, we may well be filled not only with gratitude for their contribution to human progress but with awe as we recognize the courage and steadfastness many of them expressed. Through the years, reformers, inventors, educators, philanthropists, leaders in government and religion, have not only caught the vision of some advanced concept of truth and life that others did not have before, but they have cherished and promoted it with single-minded fidelity, so that society could know of it and thereby benefit.
