"On the stairs which lead up to spiritual love"

On page 76 of "Retrospection and Introspection" Mrs. Eddy tells us: "The spiritually minded meet on the stairs which lead up to spiritual love. This affection, so far from being personal worship, fulfils the law of Love which Paul enjoined upon the Galatians. This is the Mind 'which was also in Christ Jesus,' and knows no material limitations. It is the unity of good and bond of perfectness."

The last chapter of Paul's letter to the early Christians in Rome presents in few words a volume of the beauty of Christian fellowship. The first two verses are about Phebe. These tell all we know of her history, but through them, though separated from her by centuries of time, we feel united to her because of the integrity, purity, and fidelity of her thought. Paul introduces her to their coworkers in Rome as a Christian of Cenchrea whom he has intrusted to carry his letter to Rome, and he commends her to their loving consideration, "for," he says, "she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also."
