Spiritual Navigation

[For young adults]

While browsing in the library of the officers' wardroom aboard his ship, a young Christian Scientist, who was serving as navigator, came across a Protestant hymnal. He was somewhat amused to find stamped inside the cover the words "Department of Navigation."

He was accustomed to thinking of navigation in terms of sextants, charts, and parallel rules. But now he saw how entirely appropriate the phrase was. Did not those who look for guidance and a sense of God's loving care frequently turn to songs and hymns of praise as a source of inspiration? The rich treasury of psalms proves that song has inspired and guided men from the earliest times.
