Remembrance without grief


When the younger sister of today’s contributor died unexpectedly, the idea of “praying without ceasing” brought a tangible sense of God’s love, instead of the darkness of grief.


One Saturday, a relative brought me some urgent news – my younger sister had unexpectedly passed away. It was a shock to hear this. That day, I was in my neighborhood Christian Science Reading Room, which I’d found to be a spiritual refuge since first learning about Christian Science some years before. I’d spent many hours there being fed spiritually, using its vast selection of spiritual resource materials to aid me in my Bible study. One verse had recently leapt off the page at me: “Pray without ceasing” (I Thessalonians 5:17). Right then, I’d made a private commitment to strive to do that to the best of my ability.
