'We thank Thee for work in the wide harvest field'

We thank Thee for work in the wide harvest field, For gladness that ripens when sorrow is healed; Made strong with Thy goodness that meets every need, We gather the fruit of the Sower’s good seed. —William P.

Always prepared for honest labor

In August 2011, I began attending a college in the United States and started playing on its soccer team. I hadn’t played or exercised at all in six years, and after about four days of training, I started to feel a sharp pain on the top parts of each of my feet.

Few scriptural verses so beautifully enunciate the omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence of God as those of Psalm 139. Through the teachings of Christian Science, the spiritual meaning of this psalm resonates with comforting, healing power.

What do we hunger for?

What do we hunger for? What sustains us? On one level, at least, a good deal of thought, time, energy, and effort goes into answering that question. Physical scientists are always looking for answers on how to feed the hungry and how to harvest food more humanely and efficiently.

My innocence was intact

During a study abroad, this author was enjoying an evening of practicing her new language with the locals when she was caught off-guard by one man's inappropriate advances. Prayer not only healed her of the aftereffects of the incident, but it also gave her a deeper understanding of each individual's spiritual innocence.
