God's care is equal to any emergency

Even in the face of a crisis, you can't be separated from God's love and power.

"What would you do if something really serious—like an emergency—happened? Would you still rely on Christian Science?" When I was asked this question by a high-school friend, I felt defensive. I saw her skepticism as criticism. Since then, that kind of question has surfaced in countless conversations with friends and neighbors. Increasingly I'm finding that as these discussions move beyond speculation about hypothetical situations, common ground emerges.

Underneath the curiosity or skepticism about nonmedical care is often a hunger for a more secure basis for health. People yearn for release from the anxiety fueled by the daily barrage of images depicting health as fragile and uncertain. As one friend put it, "There is always something new to worry about!" We all want to know that we and those we love are safe and that "the rug" can't suddenly be pulled out from under our lives.
