The vital spark

From the June 1982 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Unfailing Love shines forth in countless ways,
As many ways as there are human needs:
In new-found inspiration when one prays;
An understanding friend's unselfish deeds;
In a church usher's smile and welcoming word;
Or child's inspired response in Sunday School;
In glimpse of man—God's likeness, clear, unblurred—
As Jesus saw him at Bethesda's pool;
In peace of mind found at a Reading Room;
A strong, convincing testimony shared;
In needed light received when shadows loom;
Or hope and healing gained when one despaired.
Love finds expression in such varied ways—
Can we help giving thanks in grateful praise?
