OUR DWELLING PLACE

What a wealth of feeling the word "home" calls forth. It touches a responsive chord in every heart, for home connotes a place where happiness, peace, companionship, love, protection, and security abound. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 58), "Home is the dearest spot on earth, and it should be the centre, though not the boundary, of the affections."

In its highest and most spiritual signification home is heaven. Man, being spiritual, abides in the harmony of Spirit, in the Father's kingdom, or heaven, eternally. Man, God's idea, lives in a beautiful, spiritual, harmonious universe now and forever. Someone may say, This sense of home is very lovely, but of what use is it to me? Can it help meet my need of home and companionship? Yes, Christian Science is a practical religion which, when understood and put into practice in daily life, lifts one out of lack and limitation of every kind.
