My true north

Originally appeared online in the teen series: Why I'm a Christian Scientist - August 22, 2016

I’m not a Christian Scientist because of what Christian Science enables me to do. I’m a Christian Scientist because it’s the best way I know how to be.

It can be easy to get a very utilitarian view of Christian Science—like it’s this tool we pull off the shelf when we have a problem; this thing we use to resolve relationship issues or find better health. But actually, Christian Science is about understanding that the source of our being is God, divine Love. It’s about seeing that because Love is, we are. We are Love’s actual outcome and expression.
