Childlike discovery

If this issue of the Sentinel marks your first encounter with Christian Science, then you’ve begun a wonderful spiritual journey that can lead to a transformative and uplifting understanding of yourself and humanity. The discovery of Christian Science, the revelation that each one of us is capable, right now, of knowing, feeling, and demonstrating our oneness with our Father-Mother God, divine Love, brings with it joy and bliss. Just as a young child explores and discovers the world for the first time with wonder and delight, so with the same measure of adventure everyone can take in the newly discovered world of Spirit.

Mary Baker Eddy put it this way: “Willingness to become as a little child and to leave the old for the new, renders thought receptive of the advanced idea” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, pp. 323–324).

Absolute consecration is much more than a merely intellectual attempt to understand the letter.
