"Going home is doing right"

Nothing touches the human heart so closely as the thought of home. Even according to mortal usage, home to most of us means something far above the material. Its true definition is to be found not in houses and lands but in the realm of thought and of ideals. Home is sometimes mistakenly spoken of in negative terms, for a sad or an unhappy home seems a self-contradictory expression.

Christian Science lifts the thought of home higher. In his book, "Mary Baker Eddy: A Life Size Portrait," Dr. Lyman P. Powell quotes, on pages 225 and 226, what our beloved Leader says about home: "Home is not a place. It is a power. Going home is doing right." This definition lifts the meaning of home into mental and spiritual realms, where it truly belongs. Home is the activity and power of right doing.
