There are always some affirmative, upbeat things to notice. It is never total night. No matter how depressing current events may seem—local, international, or even domestic—we can always find some flickerings of light if we watch for them. We don't have to bog down in a trough of negativism.
The presence of good in human affairs is not something that happens by mere accident, in a universe of chance. It is an evidence that God is Love. And the love of Love, of Truth, is expressed through the Christ. The Christ is as universal as God, as eternal as divine Life. "Christ," Mary Baker Eddy says, "is the true idea voicing good, the divine message from God to men speaking to the human consciousness." Science and Health, p. 332.That message of truth is infallible and demonstrable. We manifest it in Christianity that loves and heals.
The Christ includes all truth — of health, of movement, of intelligence, of substance. God is what impels the good in whatever we see and do; and, by implication, leads us to uncover what is not good and correct it. The understanding of the Christ, then, is the base on which our ability to demonstrate Christian Science rotates.
