To Injure No Man But to Bless All Mankind.

Mary Baker Eddy

Regardless of demographics, hope can rise at any moment in the human heart. Because of this, there is nothing inevitable about suicide. Hope is an expectancy of good. It’s a feeling that one has the means to fulfill a treasured desire. Young people might feel that their destiny has been decided by others—for example, school authorities, parents, employers. It might seem that chance has clipped the wings of their dreams. Life might look predetermined, with hopes and dreams for happiness forever lost.

But “with God all things are possible” (Matt. 19:26 ). Regardless of circumstances, good is possible with God. In the midst of darkness, the divine light is shining hope into the human heart. It’s the light of the Christ that gently leads one out of despair and into renewed hope that good can and will happen.

In Mary Baker Eddy’s words, Christ is “the divine message from God to men speaking to the human consciousness” (Science and Health, p. 332). Christ is God’s gift to humanity. It’s not limited to one race or culture, age or denomination. The divine message brings safety, salvation, and hope to each individual.
