'...and the Word was God.'

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The word God is such a tiny simple word, and yet if we think of all it implies, the immensity of what we behold is so tremendous that we stand in awe at what we see.

I certainly stood in awe when I found myself in a life-threatening situation one extremely cold, dark winter’s evening. I was driving into the city to pick up a fellow board member on the way to an executive board meeting of the branch church of Christ, Scientist, where we are members. 

I had already driven home up the same country road earlier, but when I drove down toward my destination to pick up my passenger less than an hour later, I was totally unaware that black ice had formed since my earlier journey.
