Love that lasts

Looking through the newspapers the other day, we were startled to see the number of references to "marriage." A bank merger was described as a "marriage"; the first uniting of the space shuttle Atlantis and the space station Mir was referred to as a "space marriage."

But what about the marriage that takes place between a woman and a man? Can such unions survive in our contemporary society? And don't they have a deeper significance than the latest merger or shuttle mission?

The subject of marriage was so important to the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, that she included a chapter on it in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. The items in focus this week draw on the Bible's teachings and on what Christian Science reveals as the spiritual basis for this precious relationship. They speak about the spiritual roots of a lasting marriage. They also show how God's direction is invaluable for those who are seeking completeness, whether or not this includes marriage.
