“One endless day”

From the October 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, defines day as “the irradiance of Life; light, the spiritual idea of Truth and Love” (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 584). (Life, Truth, and Love are synonyms for God.) And the “Communion Hymn” in the Christian Science Hymnal tells us, “Love wipes your tears all away, / . . . Midst the glories of one endless day” (Mary Baker Eddy, No. 298).

The blessings of “one endless day,” then, are not about time. They are about living in the eternal present, recognizing that our eternal Parent—Father-Mother God—is indeed always with us, taking care of us, without needing any advice from us on how to do it. God’s messages to us include forsaking conventional “me-ism” to embrace “we-ism,” expressing more love to our neighbor, constantly growing spiritually, giving gratitude for even the smallest things, comprehending that our prayers to comfort and heal are effective.

Now, after many decades, I like to ponder “day” when challenging what the world has to say about aging.
