In Love Is Unity

Unity is definitely a quality of Mind. For one to understand that he, as God's idea, man, reflects this quality, gives him courage, strength, and assurance in his activities. Those who recognize this heritage are no longer obsessed by a sense of isolation or of single-handed endeavor, for as Paul says in his letter to the Corinthians, we are "workers together with him." We have come to the recognition that those who love God—and they are a goodly company—are working, praying, marching together toward the one goal—the proving that "the Lord God omnipotent reigneth," and that there is none besides Him.

A dictionary defines "unity" as "oneness of affection, harmony." Every consistent worker in Christian Science has placed his affections on the things of Spirit. His love for the Cause of Christian Science motivates his thoughts, acts, and desires. He is not striving for personal achievement; his earnest prayer is that purified thinking shall more and more find expression in all his activities; and he is constantly endeavoring to prove this in his own experience. He is alert to every opportunity to help in removing any would-be obstruction or barrier that would impede the upward climb of a fellow traveler. Perhaps discouragement is the boulder over which some must climb. A kindly word of cheer and an evidence of faith in the ultimate good resulting from honest, scientific thought will do much to bring back hope to the worker. Fear, which tries to act as a rock-ribbed wall, may be dissipated by reflecting the consideration, the tenderness and patience, which characterized every act of our Master, and which were so consistently reflected by our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.
