THE PILGRIM'S JOURNEY

Are you a pilgrim, a wanderer searching for freedom, happiness, peace? Today many wander up and down the earth in search of something stable. Some of these people, through oppression and war, have been uprooted from their native lands. They are placed in camps, or they wander homeless, hungry, and disheartened. Like the children of Israel in ancient days, they seek freedom from tyranny, although they also desire food, clothing, and shelter. But the true search today, as then, is really the search for God.

To find God and to learn of His unchanging law of Love bring the joy of which the Psalmist wrote (Ps. 119:54), "Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage." The Pilgrim Fathers, who crossed the ocean and helped to found a new country, sought freedom to worship God as their conscience dictated. Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered the land of spiritual freedom and divine law, wrote of them in "Pulpit and Press" (p. 10): "On shores of solitude, at Plymouth Rock, they planted a nation's heart, —the rights of conscience, imperishable glory. No dream of avarice or ambition broke their exalted purpose, theirs was the wish to reign in hope's reality—the realm of Love."
