Topic: The Practice of True Christianity

["Laicus," in the Queensland Times, Ipswich, Australia]

The amazing profundity of a mother's love has stirred the heart of many great thinkers. They have found therein a profounder analogy to the motherhood of God than in any other way.... It is a beautiful teaching of Christian Science which speaks of God as (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 16) "Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious." For we have in the eternal Spirit all the characteristics of a mother as well as a father. In the words of Isaiah, that Old Testament prophet, who saw deep into the heart of God because of his spiritually developed faculties, "As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you," we have a grand conception of the mother-hearted nature of God.
