Getting there from here

The distance between the image of man as the perfect child of God and our everyday life can look pretty formidable. Even Christ Jesus, who healed multitudes and brought comfort to many, was the target of anger and incredulity because what he was saying and doing seemed so out of reach. It still seems that way! But at the heart of his message was the central truth that we are not far away from God, who is divine Love and all-Life.

There's much to learn from what happens in people's lives as the idea that man is now the spiritual child of God dawns in them. I met a woman who had nearly given up all hope in life. Eventually I realized she had been severely mistreated as a child. She learned about Christian Science while she worked a night shift in a business. During periods of quiet she explored the teachings of Christian Science much like one might prepare for and set out on a long journey into an unknown land. Her life was transformed, and the love and generosity that poured out from her touched my family's life and many others.
