God's law of harmony brings healing

The extent of the problem of abused and battered children probably comes as a surprise to most of us. The pathetic lives led by such children evoke deep responses in us all. We feel pity—but this emotion is not enough to heal these tragic situations. Perhaps the response most needed is a spiritual one that can strengthen our capacities to help.

I found this out when I accepted a tough assignment to teach in a school for deprived children many years ago. I taught the entrance class of five- and six-year-olds. These children had all been taken into residential care because of their bad home conditions. Many of them had been abused, and the scars of both the mental and physical deprivation they had endured were pitiful.
