Complete Unity

If we could always correctly read the hearts of men and women, pierce through the veil of belief and know what they were most longing for, most hoping for, we might be surprised to discover how often the dominant desire would be found in the yearning wish for harmonious unity with some other individual or group. Especially where the currents of feeling, imagination, misjudgment, have for a long time carried relatives, friends, or former associates far apart, the earnest desire for unity, friendly concourse, declares its high value. In the home, unity is the element of heaven; in church relations, unity is the one cement which binds strong and pleasant stones into a structure of spiritual strength with impregnable walls of defense.

Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 469, 470), "With one Father, even God, the whole family of man would be brethren; and with one Mind and that God, or good, the brotherhood of man would consist of Love and Truth, and have unity of Principle and spiritual power which constitute divine Science." She also writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 162): "A small group of wise thinkers is better than a wilderness of dullards and stronger than the might of empires. Unity is spiritual cooperation, heart to heart, the bond of blessedness." How true are these words of wisdom; and how often they have been used in the Cause of Christian Science with marvelous success as their fruitage!
