Angels Are God's Pure Thoughts

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Sally and her mother liked to do things together. One day they drove into a large city near their home and went to an art museum. They walked through many different rooms looking at the paintings and talking about them. Sally noticed that in a number of the pictures there were people with wings, who, her mother said, were called angels.

Sally had learned in the Christian Science Sunday School that angels are "God's thoughts passing to man" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. p. 581). So on the way home Sally asked, "Why did the artists paint the angels in long robes, with wings, and looking like people?"
