Christian Science: reason for hope

"I am a stranger in the earth" (Ps. 119:19).

To those who have deeply and honestly contemplated the human condition, humanity seems indeed a stranger in a strange land. There seems to be such a vast discrepancy between the scope of our deepest desires and the ability of anything in this world to satisfy them.

And yet, in spite of what appears to be a universal condition of limitation, chaos, and eventual death, an inner hope nags us with the conviction that our quest is valid, that we actually can express in our lives something pure and good and permanent.
