Celebrating the integrity of man

At the end of enjoying a Christmas Eve dinner out at a restaurant with family and friends, I discovered I was missing my wallet. A frantic search ensued with waiters crawling underneath tables, but no wallet was found.

Remarkably, a deep feeling came over me—not of anger, fear, resentment, or anxiety, but a tidal wave of deep love. In a moment when I could have felt violated, threatened, guilty, and thoughtless for not keeping a closer watch, I felt instead the prayers of my friends and family, who were all Christian Scientists—students of the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. I knew they were praying along with me to uphold in our thought the integrity of man and to know it would be known and witnessed. This was especially important because of the mental atmosphere of fear about theft and other crimes in the area. I felt the warmth of God, divine Truth and Love, and a peaceful calm.
