Where stability is

The tangled skein of events in the Middle East—especially current happenings in Iran—may lead us to feel we know where stability is not. Yet stability can be found in Spirit, and Spirit can be found everywhere, because Spirit is everywhere. The role of Christian Scientists in helping to bring healing to discord is not primarily to make political assessments but to know such spiritual truths of being.

According to Christian Science, Spirit's infinitely stable, peaceful kingdom is the only true one. Graphic television coverage of violence and counterforce, of the comings and goings of religious and political personalities seeming to hold vital keys to the Iranian situation, should stir us to affirm truths of being that will help bring calm and healing to the storm and that will support negotiations aimed at settlement. Our need is to focus, just as acutely as we can, on the unchanging, continuous reign of the omnipresent laws of divine Love. In absolute Truth, these laws can never be challenged, and they can never be ineffective.
