You don't have to grieve

The spiritual sense of life overcomes grief and sorrow, revealing that God is the Life of man.

Much of the world believes that when a loved one passes, those remaining must endure a period of grieving, which often lasts for years and is attended by stages of yearning, loss, anger, and guilt. Indeed, this compulsory period of anguish is often thought of as a kind of tribute, or a sign of respect, for the loved one who is no longer present.

Those who are finding their way in Christian Science, however, are often able to set aside human theories about life and death, and to catch a glimpse of life as unbroken, complete, eternal.

The Bible speaks of God as our life, therefore Christian Science identifies God as Life and man as the expressed image, the very reflection of Life, which includes no material sense of limitation or death but knows only an infinite sense of continuity, unfolding progress, and wholeness. Each individual man is included in this wholeness, for as Mrs. Eddy states in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, "If man flickers out in death or springs from matter into being, there must be an instant when God is without His entire manifestation,—when there is no full reflection of the infinite Mind" (p. 244).
