During the sensual ages, absolute Christian Science may not be achieved prior to the change called death, 18for we have not the power to demonstrate what we do not understand. But the human self must be evangel‐ized. This task God demands us to accept lovingly 21to-day, and to abandon so fast as practical the material, and to work out the spiritual which determines the out‐ward and actual.
27 If you launch your bark upon the ever-agitated but healthful waters of truth, you will encounter storms. The cross and crownYour good will be evil spoken of. This is the 30cross. Take it up and bear it, for through it you win and wear the crown. Pilgrim on earth, thy home is heaven; stranger, thou art the guest of God.
