THE THUNDER OF THE LAW AND THE LIGHTNING OF THE GOSPEL

Among the experiences of her childhood the writer remembers that during thunderstorms a nervous mother would have all the window curtains drawn, and if the noise and lightning were really severe would have the children conducted to the basement. This practice, coupled with the suggestion that storms caused headaches, led to an acceptance of this belief and more or less subjection to it.

The false fears continued until the writer learned in Christian Science that no manifestation of storm is able to frighten or harm man, since such disturbances are only counterfeits of God's omnipotent and wholly beneficent power. Then the distress believed to be caused by thunder and lightning was lessened to a great extent, but it was not until further study of the Bible in the light of Mary Baker Eddy's writings brought more understanding of the spiritual facts of being that a new and more constructive sense of these phenomena began to entirely alter the former thought entertained about them.
