You will always exist

What does it mean to be immortal? That we are each immortal is an essential aspect of the teachings of Christian Science, and I confess I’ve struggled to understand the concept.

Then, goes my human reasoning, if I work hard enough I’ll finally get it right—like a math problem. But this kind of thinking always leads to the same incorrect conclusion: Immortality is for saints or sci-fi characters. Eternal life? Nice idea, but not for the average Joe.

So one day this past winter, in the middle of a school-canceling blizzard, I was surprised by a wholly unbidden vision regarding immortality that illuminated the truth about God, immortal Life, in a new way.
