"Encompassed by divine presence"

Grateful are those people who know the encompassing presence of God, divine Mind. Whatever their human situation, wherever they may be, however they are separated by distance from friends, relatives, or co-workers, those who understand the omnipresence of Mind and its ideas know that they are not alone. Christian Science makes it clear that only thought, not place, can separate or unite individuals. No personal closeness can compare with the unity based upon a mutual love of Mind and a willingness to prove its presence.

Speaking to the alumni of the Massachusetts Metaphysical College in 1895, Mary Baker Eddy said (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 110), "Weeks have passed into months, and months into years, since last we met: but time and space, when encompassed by divine presence, do not separate us."
