YOUR TRUTH IS MY TRUTH

GROWING UP in Germany, traveling throughout the world, living and working in the United States, I've seen that God can't possibly be limited to language, culture, or geographical location. I cherish the concept that Truth is universal. And God is Truth. When I began studying Christian Science three years ago, I gained a deeper insight into this fact, as I learned to discern the presence of the eternal Christ, God's spiritual idea, which never depends on time, place, language, or person.

For example, we can find God's infinite expression everywhere—in the kindness of our neighbors, their hospitality, love, compassion, and tolerance. We can all agree that a smile is always a smile, wherever we go. Kindness and helpfulness may be expressed differently in different cultures, but the motives and feelings for these sentiments are understood everywhere. This statement by Mary Baker Eddy gives me a clear sense of God's unbounded nature: "God creates and governs the universe, including man. The universe is filled with spiritual ideas, which He evolves, and they are obedient to the Mind that makes them" (Science and Health, p. 295).
