HOME, THE EVER-PRESENCE OF GOD

"Home is not a place but a power. We find home when we arrive at the full understanding of God. Home! Think of it! Where sense has no claims and Soul satisfies." This wonderful statement, given by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science to members of her household, is recorded on page 156 of Irving C. Tomlinson's book, "Twelve Years with Mary Baker Eddy."

With customary originality and mature spiritual perception, the beloved Leader of the Christian Science movement clothes the idea of home with the spiritual signification it deserves. Defining home as the power of spiritual understanding, the completeness and eternal satisfaction of Soul, Mrs. Eddy invests the term with its true sense of innate dignity and influence. Thus man's primal and eternal dwelling is understood not as a material structure, but as the consciousness of his oneness, or unity, with God.
