God's Children, one and all

We Are All God's Children
by Don Ingwerson
Many times in my life I’ve felt compelled to dig deeply in prayer to combat perceived problems in the world. Each time I’ve felt this yearning, I find Mary Baker Eddy‘s chapter on prayer in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures to be particularly powerful. I also find the Christian Science Sentinel‘s “Eye on the World” blog gives helpful focus on delving more deeply into the issues we face today. So today I’d like to share “One human race,” which dealt specifically with the divisive issue of race after the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. I hope you too find this blog helpful.
