THAT 'STILL SMALL VOICE' OF GOD: TOO SMALL TO SPEAK TO EXTREME WEATHER?

From the September 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal


"WE SHOULD HAVE THE SAME CONTROL OVER THE WEATHER THAT WE HAVE OVER OUR BODIES."

Mary Baker Eddy as quoted by Irving C. Tomlinson (A11927, The Mary Baker Eddy Collection, The Mary Baker Eddy Library)

Just as with medical-news reports, every day we hear breaking news about the weather—and it's often pretty grim. Earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, floods, and droughts can seem huge in scope—and definitely beyond our control. But as we practice Christian Science, we come to understand the universal truths of God, good, to be unbreakable law. So if there is one, all-powerful Mind, how can we be helpless victims living in a world of random weather disasters?
