Self-revealing Truth and Love

Rather than being alone, adrift in a sea of anger or confusion without any buoys or other reassuring markers, every one of us is embraced and held by divine Love.

Loving and wanting the best for our children doesn’t stop once they start school, turn twenty-one, get married, or move away. From experience and observation, I see the need for affection and care increasing, not decreasing, for the next generation and beyond. Issues such as mental health, employability, and peer pressure pull at our heartstrings to be addressed with whatever resources we know to be sound. More specific demands and challenges for future generations may also come into sharper focus. 

Loving others is closely connected to knowing God as Truth and Love, and it can be seen as the Christ in action. Mary Baker Eddy, a deep student of the Bible, wrote this about what Christ is and does: “Christ is the true idea voicing good, the divine message from God to men speaking to the human consciousness.” She records this in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 332), a book with a broad and fresh description of the nature of Christ, Truth, and its embrace of everyone. The book explains that loving actions are not separate from divine Love, nor expressions of truth from eternal Truth. 

The effects of the transformative power of Truth and Love are often seen and felt as a journey of renewal.
