A HOME OF OUR OWN

In his book "Twelve Years with Mary Baker Eddy," Irving C. Tomlinson recalls Mrs. Eddy saying (p. 156): "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." In the same chapter Mrs. Eddy is quoted as saying tenderly that she wanted every one of her students to have a home of his own.

During the Second World War a Christian Science practitioner was serving as First Reader in a branch church in a city where a large air base made the housing shortage very acute. About a year before her term expired, the comfortable and conveniently located apartment building in which she had maintained her home was placed on the real estate market. Instead of being overwhelmed with fear, she saw that she had an opportunity to progress in the spiritual understanding of home. She silenced error's arguments of confusion and shortage by confidently declaring for, and claiming the ever-present government of, impartial divine Principle for all concerned.
