In his novel A Tale of Two Cities, author Charles Dickens opened with, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”
Well, one could certainly make sound arguments that the year 2020 fits within this descriptive language in many ways. Yet, even with all the challenges, unrest, discord and hardship of 2020, hope does spring eternal. And unconditionally, divine Love does overcome and heal. Thus, Wide Horizon continues its good work of benevolent Christian Science nursing for our community and mankind. Yes, this is a season of light and love!
The discoverer and founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, extemporaneously wrote the following on the morning of January 1, 1910:
O blessings infinite!
O glad New Year!
Sweet sign and substance
Of God’s presence here.
Give us not only angels’ songs,
But Science vast, to which belongs
The tongue of angels
And the song of songs.
MARY BAKER EDDY
(The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 354)
We here at Wide Horizon desire that you may feel God’s holy presence and hear Spirit’s angelic song of Science whomever and wherever you are throughout this New Year!
