A healing response to extremism

First appeared as a Web Original on February 24, 2020

Reading the news, scrolling through social media, or talking with friends and family, it’s clear there’s a concern that extremism, hatred, resentment, revenge, and fear are inevitable and unstoppable. But if we look deeper, is it possible to find something more compelling and more powerful than these sentiments and their negative influence?

Through my study of Christian Science, I’ve found that there is something more powerful. It’s divine Love. This Love is God, and it is the most powerful force there is. It’s all-encompassing. There is no extremism in this Love. There’s no conditionality, fickleness, or false hope about it. It’s infinite good. Its strength and protecting power are perfectly balanced with its gentleness, tenderness, and peace.
