What if?

He was a stranger to our church, 
a stranger to Christian Science,
but he’d stopped at our Reading Room and read ...
   and read ...
   and read ...
and then came to church.
Quietly, he took the usher’s microphone to ask a 
   question.
In a virtual whisper he said,
“What if?
What if God, good, really is All?
If God is right here, right now, always and ever?
If God is at my right hand,
my left hand,
above and below me?
What if that really is true?
Would I, could I, ever be afraid again, if that were 
   really the case?
Could I ever move on or out or away from God? 
What is there left to fear 
   if God is All— 
   if God really is All?”
he quietly whispered, 
and then sat down.
