Celebrating universal good, Latin American style

From the August 2008 issue of The Christian Science Journal

LIMA, PERU. "¡BUENO!" OR IN ENGLISH, "GOOD!" IT'S AN EXPRESSION THAT punctuates a lot of conversations in Latin America. We've heard it again and again, as the Christian Science Board of Directors has traveled to ten Spanish-speaking countries in recent weeks, visiting with Mother Church members.

"¡Bueno!" It's a little like a blessing, in street lingo. It says, "Yes, sure! We're together on this!" "¡Bueno!" says our host, "I'll take you to church at 6:30." And we say, "¡Bueno! See you then!"

"¡Bueno!" always reminds me of something more—the simply wonderful fact that God is good. And that His/Her goodness is always evident—everywhere, in every person, in every situation. True, this good may not always appear on the surface, but if you look and listen with your spiritual antenna up, you'll invariably find that good. The Christ, which Science and Health describes as "the true idea voicing good," will inevitably confirm the presence of good in unmistakable ways, right where you are (p. 332).
