Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, May 19, 1946, is "Mortals and Immortals." The golden text Is "Henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more." (II Corinthians 5:16) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the, Bible citations reads: "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;" (Acts 17:24,25) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "In Science man is the offspring of Spirit. The beautiful, good, and pure constitute his ancestry. His origin is not, like that of mortals, in brute instinct, nor does he pass through material conditions S rior to reaching intelligence. Spirit i his primitive and ultimate source of being; God is his Father, and life is the law of his being." (p. 68) * ten.

The problems of feeding the starving millions in foreign countries, getting jobs for all who want to work, reconversion of industry, veterans' rehabilitation and the construction of an enduring world peace call for an inspired leadership. It is to the youth of our country that we look for this future leadership. It matters not what you have chosen as your immediate task, whether it be further education in universities and colleges, or a start in your chosen vocation, we have absolute confidence in your ability to do the job ahead of you. Some of you will be called into the service of your country to help secure the peace. We know you will carry on your duties as well as those who preceded you and won the great victory. The class motto you have chosen, "Do not stare up the steps of opportunity, but step up the stairs," is in keeping with the spirit of youth today. Our American way of life was saved by our youth with high ideals. Now it is your turn to do a big job for America —and the world of today! We wish you well and extend our most sincere wishes for your success and happiness in all that you do.
