WE'RE ALL FAMILY

At a local sports event with my family, sitting in a stadium with people on all sides, I was reminded of a sentence from Science and Health. It begins, "One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations . . ." (p. 340). We really felt the truth of this statement that day. As we left, it was as though we were leaving a family we had known for some time. None of the differences among the people surrounding us hindered anyone's expression or receipt of love.

What would it take for all encounters with strangers to be so harmonious? The key in this case was that we all exchanged unselfishness and love. It was an excellent example of God, divine Love, being expressed unconditionally. To be perfectly honest, it probably helped that we didn't know or speculate about anyone's background. Nor did we focus on our companions' appearances. We were all too swept up in a sense of brotherhood to get mired in anything that would divide us.
