Safety in spiritual thinking

Divine Love’s all-embracing care and Mind’s direction are at hand to bring comfort and release from fear and to open the way even in the most challenging circumstances.

“It was a dark and stormy night” . . . literally. I was a college student camping in the Lake District of Northern England with a friend. The sun was setting, and a storm was coming in. We had been out hiking in the woods around a lake. As rain started falling, we headed back toward our campsite, but the farther we walked and the more turns we took, the more disoriented we grew as night fell. 

It was a time before cellphones or GPS. We were both Christian Scientists, used to turning to God in prayer. I remembered a simple childhood prayer: “Wherever I am, God is. Since this is so, there is no safer place than where I go.”
