The Demand of the Hour

On page 362 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy writes, "We all must find shelter from the storm and tempest in the tabernacle of Spirit." Today one hears on all sides the need for protection and shelter; and the student of Christian Science knows that the only true shelter is a right state of consciousness, since that which is held in consciousness is expressed in one's experience.

The Christian Scientist has a supreme duty, therefore, to the community at this time of seeming danger, to preserve in his consciousness this sanctuary of Spirit, the realization of the allness of God and the nothingness of evil, in order to keep his thought clear from the aggressive mental suggestions of disaster and destruction. He knows that the most effective shelter is the consciousness of good's omnipotence and omnipresence. With this consciousness he is assured of protection wherever his duty may take him. To such a state of thought the fearful and the sorrowful will surely come for comfort, strength, and healing.
