I am grateful beyond words that Christian Science has always been a part of my life. My parents and grandparents, all students of Christian Science, supported and nurtured my innate understanding that everyone is God’s loved child. This was a joyful truth to know when growing up (and as an adult). It released me to know and trust in the safety and universal love that exists in the kingdom of God.
Christ Jesus taught, “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21). As I learned to know and feel God’s presence within me, right where I was, I felt greater freedom and trust in any situation. In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy states, “Paganism and agnosticism may define Deity as ‘the great unknowable;’ but Christian Science brings God much nearer to man, and makes Him better known as the All-in-all, forever near” (p. 596). This nearness of God, divine Love, guides and protects us, and is a tangible presence in our lives.
