Travels in Pakistan
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
Recently, I completed speaking engagements on Christian Science healing in one of Pakistan’s largest cities, Faisalabad. This was just after the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, a time of significant tension between India and Pakistan. At the time, the Canadian government (I am Canadian) was advising against traveling to Pakistan, but going forward with the activity seemed right. I prayed knowing that everyone is always safe under God’s protecting shield of love, and that God would guide me throughout this experience.
Just before I left, a friend whose work has taken him to Pakistan wrote me the following e-mail: “I think you will find that Pakistan is a very different place from the one we are conditioned to see in the news. I have never witnessed the Science of Mary Baker Eddy’s statement "Love is reflected in love" demonstrated more clearly than in Pakistan and Afghanistan.” His comments suggested that when you travel with that great love of God in your heart, it quickly becomes apparent that Love is present everywhere.
And, indeed, I experienced that Love!
