No other way

As I turned on the TV for a winter weather report the other morning, I came across a curious bit of news from Oklahoma. It told about a deer that had been stuck for several hours out on a frozen lake. The ice was not expected to hold much longer. All suggestions well-meaning people offered on how to rescue the deer were proving unworkable. Finally a TV news helicopter flew in to see what could be done. The pilot had the idea to use the force of the helicopter's rotor blades to blow the deer to shore. And that is what happened. Once on solid ground, the stunned animal scrambled back on its feet and safely ran off.

To me, this rescue was an inspiring example of healing creativity at work. There was a need. People responded, wanting to help. They listened for answers. Then, a spark of inspiration brought a resolution. Sentinel founder Mary Baker Eddy explained such creative spiritual activity in these words: "Spirit, God, gathers unformed thoughts into their proper channels, and unfolds these thoughts, even as He opens the petals of a holy purpose in order that the purpose may appear" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 506).
