From grief to peace after tragedy

The recent airline disaster in the French Alps has caused many in the world to seek prayerful comfort and healing solutions in the spirit of Christly compassion, support, and brotherhood. Years ago, after a similar incident affected me personally, I needed to prayerfully work through and rise above the full gamut of emotions involved with such a tragedy. Christian Science played the leading role in bringing me real, lasting peace and a renewed sense of God as Life and Love.

One evening just before the Christmas holidays, a friend and I were watching the news on TV as breaking international coverage suddenly interrupted with live footage of fragments of a downed aircraft. We were both quietly praying to know that those aboard and their families were in spiritual reality forever enveloped in divine Love, when the phone rang. I was advised that a close family member had been on that flight and that there were no survivors. Reeling from shock and the disturbing images I had seen on the news, I struggled to rise above the sea of emotions.
