No fall from Love’s eternal grace

From the May 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

No fall from Love's eternal grace

If Love is God, whose grace cannot be thwarted,
then Love prevails, and you and I endure.
Like oil and meal multiplied,
and Cana’s water turned to wine, the good at hand,
our very substance, springs afresh and ever new.

If fathered and conceived by Love,
then how “the fall” of Love’s idea?
Such sad “event” unwitnessed, void of history,
is but a myth insinuated, dateless,
placeless—dust-dream, mist-mirage.

Love’s unceasing, steadfast light—the Christ—
burns through that myth, and wakes us from the dream.
Our being is intact, untempted and untouched.
A holy and expansive life in Love unfolds, 
to frustrate not, but magnify, the grace of God.See Galatians 2:21
