The Lighthouse Is There

[Of Special Interest to Youth]

Ellen was spending the summer with her family at their seashore cottage, a place in which she had always been joyous and carefree. However, this summer the joy which she had heretofore experienced seemed lacking, because of a problem of human relationship which was very demanding. Realizing that as a student of Christian Science it was for her to meet the situation with the light of Truth, she would not begin her day's activities until she had taken her Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and studied and prayed earnestly.

She felt that although she was endeavoring to act with love and selflessness, there appeared to be an increasing sense of what was unloving and intolerant in the other individual who was involved in this situation. Without becoming aware of it, Ellen had allowed resentment and discouragement to enter her thinking, and she began to feel that the problem was insurmountable.
