What if ...?

Do you ever find yourself wondering what may happen if some dreaded eventuality materializes, or if some cherished aspiration does not?

As Mrs. Eddy points out in Science and Health: "To calculate one's life-prospects from a material basis, would infringe upon spiritual law and misguide human hope." Science and Health, p. 319. In the final analysis mortal calculations amount to nothing but a detour leading away from our goal of spiritual understanding and healing.
