The vast reach of Love

From the August 17, 2015 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


How big are the “everlasting arms of Love”? The idea of being upheld and embraced by God’s love isn’t new; it comes from the book of Deuteronomy, “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” ( 33:27 ). A well-known hymn elaborates on this timeless idea:  Everlasting arms of Love  Are beneath, around, above;  God it is who bears us on,  His the arm we lean upon.
