Do you feel isolated?

The impulse to melt the cold barriers between us and others comes from infinite Love. Who could resist its warm embrace?

One Wednesday evening when I was attending the testimony meeting in our little Christian Science Society, a newcomer sat in front of me. When I spoke to her at the close of the service, she burst into tears and said she had prayed that someone would speak to her. She felt alone, isolated, and afraid.

There are many who feel that way from time to time. Shouldn't we begin to express in word and deed an outgoing, unselfed interest in those with whom we come in contact in our daily rounds? On the street, in the marketplace, in the schoolroom, in the office, at the gas station, in the professions— everywhere.
