Turn to the Light

[For young teens]

One of Steve's daily jobs was to take the trash down into the basement of the apartment house in which the family lived. This was usually done after the evening meal when the basement was dark and deserted. His Scout meetings were held in the evenings too, and he had to walk to them by himself since there were no boys his age in the building. Steve and his family were living in a foreign country, and both the people and the dark streets seemed strange. For some time he'd felt afraid whenever he had to go into dark places.

But Steve had been taught in the Christian Science Sunday School that God is present everywhere at all times. He tried earnestly to hold to this truth, but it wasn't easy to be brave as long as thoughts of fear or error kept returning.
