God Is All

In the adversities of nations during the past few years, Christian Scientists and spiritually-minded people everywhere have learned to take refuge "in the secret place of the most High." Unnumbered thousands of all classes of peoples in war-stricken areas, whether naturally inclined to religion or not, have turned to the ninety-first Psalm for comfort and spiritual enlightenment. Again is being experienced what is set forth in the Bible concerning the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. It is recorded that the Israelites "had light in their dwellings," while the Egyptians dwelt in darkness. Those who have had some measure of the Christ-understanding during recent years have had spiritual light in their consciousness, and have not long entertained doubts that God is again leading humanity out of its self-imposed suffering into harmony and peace. In the words of a hymn (Christian Science Hymnal, No. 134),

Thou leadest me by unsought ways,
Thou turn'st my mourning into praise.
