Svigt. Uærlighed.

Jeg var overhovedet ikke interesseret i religion. Det var bestemt ikke noget for mig, tænkte jeg.

Denne oversættelse af Mary Baker Eddys indvielsesbudskab ”’ Så vælg i dag’” er en gave fra Moderkirkens bestyrelse The Christian Science Board of Directors. Mary Baker Eddy er Opdageren og Grundlæggeren af Christian Science — Kristen Videnskab — forfatter til Videnskab og Helse med Nøgle til Skriften  og Pastor Emeritus i The First Church of Christ, Scientist, i Boston, USA.

Det var i tresserne, og krigen i Vietnam rasede. Som mange i min generation var jeg imod krigen og ville meget gerne bidrage til, at den fik en ende.

The Mission of the Herald

In 1903, Mary Baker Eddy established The Herald of Christian Science. Its purpose: "to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth." The definition of "herald" as given in a dictionary, "forerunner—a messenger sent before to give notice of the approach of what is to follow," gives a special significance to the name Herald and moreover points to our obligation, the obligation of each one of us, to see that our Heralds fulfill their trust, a trust inseparable from the Christ and first announced by Jesus (Mark 16:15), "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

Mary Sands Lee, Christian Science Sentinel, July 7, 1956
