God Is Close

Betty had attended the Christian Science Sunday School from the time she was three years old. She loved to hear about God as Love and to know that God loves every one of us, who are all His children. She prayed to Him every night and got a great sense of His presence and care for her. Sometimes, however she felt rather lonely, as her brother and sister were both away at boarding school, while she was at home with her mother and did lessons at home. Often she would turn to God when she felt lonely and ask Him to help her. Then she would feel His closeness.

One day Betty's mother told her that she had arranged for her to go to a nice boarding school in London, where she felt sure Betty would be very happy. But she would not be able to attend Sunday School because her father, who was not a Christian Scientist, did not wish the school to know about Betty's religion. Betty was distressed about this, but she was looking forward to going to her new school.
