My eureka moment

From the June 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Legend has it that upon noticing his body displaced a certain amount of water as he got into a bathtub, Archimedes made an important scientific discovery, causing him to exclaim, “Eureka!”

One night I had my own eureka moment—in the bathtub—that involved the displacement not of H2O but of a false concept of my relationship to God.

Earlier that day an article in the Journal titled “God doesn’t have grandchildren” had caught my attention. “Our relationship to Him is not like that of a grandchild to a grandparent—a generation removed—but the very close one of a child to a loving parent,” stated the author (Thomas Mitchinson, January 2021).
