More love on a small planet (Part 1)

"More love is the great need of mankind," Miscellaneous Writings, p. 107. Mary Baker Eddy, the Founder of Christian Science, said in an address in Boston on May 26, 1895.

Who could fail to agree? Looking down on this little planet from the vantage point of space, one would see in so many places the sad, futile flashes of rockets and bombs. Territorial lines, the names of combatants, and even issues would probably seem much less significant than those pinpricks of fire down there—explosions of hate followed by sorrow—which have gone on so long.

In the midst of terrorism and wars the human heart cries out for more love. It cries out for love in the midst of ordinary living.
