You are always safe

At the time of writing this article, the tragedy of TWA flight 800 is still being mentioned on radio and television and in newspapers. There is still speculation as to whether a malfunction of the aircraft or a terrorist activity was involved. Whatever may be to blame, the question remains as to whether there is a way to be assured of safety when traveling by air.

My wife and I, during the course of several years, have often traveled by air throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, and elsewhere. When making such a journey, we invariably have prayed to know God's protective power is in operation wherever we go—in fact, is everywhere.

On one occasion we were flying a short while after Pan Am flight 103 blew up over Lockerbie in Scotland. I remember very well how we prayed for safety. We knew that, whatever the human appearance may be, evil has no real power. This is true because man is actually the idea, or expression, of God, the one spiritual, perfect divine Principle. When each of us recognizes this and lives accordingly, we can only bless each other. In our prayers we affirmed that all were under God's healing and protecting power. This power comes to us through the Christ, which is always with us, wherever we go. The pure power of Love lived is the Christ being expressed. It shows man's perfection as the child of God and reveals our wholeness as His reflection. No one can ever be outside of God's care.
