Upheaval or Unfoldment?

From the November 1977 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Is it possible to be optimistic about the world situation when daily there appear new areas of conflict and violence, as well as continuing problems from the past? Can one survey all these disturbances in an intelligent and helpful way and still maintain faith in ultimate and certain good? First of all, we need to gain and sustain a proper perspective. A few years ago, an Austrian physicist wrote an article for an American magazine explaining how he, as a physicist, could be an optimist in these times.
