"The brightness of His glory"

ON page 365 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy has written, "As a literature, Christian metaphysics is hampered by lack of proper terms in which to express what it means." In testimony meetings one often hears Christian Scientists remark, "Words cannot express my gratitude;" and indeed human language remains mute in contemplation of the omnipotence and omnipresence of God, His love, provision, and care for His children.

Perhaps one has groped for a long period of time in a condition of sickness, sorrow, or sin, and has found that all material theories and methods, as well as human opinions, have failed to meet his need and bring him the desired consolation or the solution to his problems. When that one has turned unreservedly to God and His spiritual laws, as revealed in Christian Science, and has found surcease from human woes, he searches for an expression or word to convey to others his sense of freedom.
