Progress unlimited

From the July 1997 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Unjustly accused. Beaten in public. Put in prison—in stocks. At midnight they prayed. They sang hymns of praise to God. The other prisoners listened.

"Suddenly there was a violent earthquake, which shook the prison to its foundations. At once all the doors opened, and the chains fell off all the prisoners."  Acts 16:26, Good News Bible: The Bible in Today's English Version.

This is the story of Paul and Silas—at least part of it—as told in the book of Acts in the Bible. See Acts 16: 16-40 . They were followers of Christ Jesus. Their experience has a lot to tell us about progress, the kind of progress that cannot be held back.
