FUNDAMENTALS

Decisions, prayer, and progress

Going forward doesn't mean losing what is good.

From the September 1999 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Picture Yourself on the back of a paddle-wheel boat that's about to leave. You're thinking, "Should I remain on the boat or jump off and stay ashore?" The boat's engine is racing and its paddle wheels are going round and round, but you're holding on to a rope attached to the dock, preventing the boat from embarking.
