Reflecting Truth

On a clear, crisp day in September a party of climbers ascended one of the highest mountains in their vicinity,—rated to be a mile high. They had made an early start, and the summit was reached about two o'clock in the afternoon, when a glorious and unclouded view rewarded their efforts. One of their first desires was to signal to their friends in the valley far below, and this they did by means of hand mirrors. By holding up the mirror, small though it was, the rays of the sun were caught and sent across the great distance down to the waiting ones, who, looking up toward the summit, saw the bright flash with its message. They could see no figures, no moving objects; the bare, rocky cliffs, dark against the sky, revealed no trace of human life, but the flash, clear and unmistakable, assured the watchers that their friends had gained the top of the mountain.

To one of those in the valley came not only the flash from the little mirror, but a clear illustration of what may be done by each Christian Scientist who is reflecting Truth and Love. Before understanding much of Christian Science, the writer attended several meetings at a Christian Science church in the city where she was located. She was a stranger in that church; she did not know any of the members, nor did she find a familiar face, but the flash of spiritual light came unmistakably to her from those who had gained the height, and the light was reflected to the watchers below.
