In these days when so much is heard on every side of home ties broken by the absence of those who have gone out to serve in this time of the world's great need, it is well now and then to ponder over that loved word home, and to realize what its true meaning in divine Science is. A careful study of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, with even a small measure of understanding gathered therefrom, reveals to us that the spiritual fact alone is the reality and that the material concept is always and only the counterfeit.

Probably no word in our language means to most of us so much as does the word home. It brings us a sense of love, peace, and rest from the stress of outside things, which we can find nowhere else. A home may be a place of luxury and beauty or it may be an abode where not even the so-called necessities of life are all to be found; but even a small degree of sympathy, understanding, and human love will make of it a sanctuary. A house, however beautiful or comfortable, is never of itself a home; and so even the most material thinker admits that home is after all a mental concept, a manifestation of mutual love, understanding, and helpfulness, a place in which to rest mentally as well as physically.
