A lesson from the timberline trees

Anyone who has hiked in the high country at timberline has probably marveled at the sight of a lone tree, or a clump of trees huddled together. It seems impossible that plant life could survive at that altitude under the harsh conditions of wind, snow, and cold. But there the trees are—hardy, tough, alive.

An analogy might be made between these resilient trees and the Christian Scientists throughout the world who are alone or in small numbers. Both have to put down roots deeply into soil and rock to resist being uprooted and to find the nourishment they need.
