Light and the certainty of illumination

From the May 2019 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Ask a child to describe what light is, and one answer might be, “It’s what lets us see!” That simple logic is one of the reasons light so often appears to point to spiritual understanding in the Bible. Spiritual understanding enables us to discern God’s presence in our lives—expressed in health, harmony, and love—even as we may be struggling with a toilsome, and oftentimes turbulent, sense of existence.
