Editorial
On the basis that Truth’s infinitude leaves no room for lies, we discern that God is the true wellspring of all thought and action, and that therefore none of God’s children can perpetrate or be persuaded by a “firehose of falsehood.”

Truth you can trust

How are we to know what is actually true?
Article
It simply is not in God’s character to send, allow, or admit evil, and we have the God-given right to defy any claim that He does.

I needed a religion that would set me on some kind of path to a more satisfying way of life.

The power of innocence

Innocence and goodness were what protected Jesus and caused him to triumph, to rise from the grave in the stunning victory of his resurrection. His example proved that the understanding and living of our innate innocence as God’s image brings to bear His power in our thoughts and lives.

Testimony of Healing
One of our tour directors remarked near the end of the trip that she had never heard me complain about anything that had happened, and I thought, “What’s to complain about? I’ve had two wonderful healings!
Testimony of Healing

No more sprained ankles

I have a clear memory from that morning of standing in a sea of children with a throbbing pain from my swollen ankle, and then experiencing a new and remarkable sensation, rather like a sprinkle of cool water on my foot, as the pain simply drained away.

A new view of normal

If unvarying good is the fact of being, and we’re each actually spiritual, then illness, discord, accident, and injustice have no standing in this spiritual creation. Here is a “new normal” to be reckoned with!

The antidote by which we master the error of divisiveness is understanding that the sole legitimate source of everyone’s thoughts is our common creator.
Keeping Watch
There is no need to manipulate. Instead we can enjoy witnessing God’s perfect timing, direction, control, and influence.
Keeping Watch
When we find that unspiritual impressions have built up in thought, we can “turn on the self-cleaning oven” of self-immolation and burn away those false conceptions, all stemming from the belief in a selfhood apart from God.
Poem

Keeping Watch
That perfect love that Christ Jesus demonstrated is already within each of us, because we are made in the image of God. It is our true nature to love, because we are the image of Love.
Teens

Can prayer stop a bully?

Rather than retaliating with our own bullying behavior, my friends and I, through our prayers, were responding with the healing love Jesus taught.

Editorial
Where can we start in recognizing our genuine (if yet unrecognized) character? I’ve found that it begins with gaining a stronger, clearer understanding of who and what God is.
Keeping Watch
Jesus wanted to know only what God knew. He wanted to see only what God saw. We, too, can experience healing or saving when we have these desires.
Keeping Watch
Through understanding the supremacy of God and our divine right to overcome illness, including this pandemic, we can prove the sheer rightness—indeed the sheer all-powerful reality—of harmony, including health and holiness.
Keeping Watch
God’s blessing isn’t something up in the sky, a rarefied goodness that you can get only if you’re a bit of a saint. It’s here. It’s genuine. It’s solid. And it has expression in a way that makes sense to us at this moment.
Article
Every time I express gratitude I feel closer to God.
Testimony of Healing
It was a lovely service, but when it was over, I was sad to realize that I was still in pain. I turned to God in prayer and asked what to do next. I immediately felt a calm, comforting divine presence, and a clear thought came to me: “Church isn’t over.”

Redeeming the time

Jesus provided abundant proof of the redeeming power of Christ in the numberless healings he brought about through prayer.
Article
Easter invites us all to turn from grief to the recognition of “infinite possibilities.”
Keeping Watch
The more I learn of the depth and breadth of the spiritual fact that God is Love, the more I am able to turn the other cheek—to turn aside in order to gain a new view and to see clearly that divine Love is blessing me and everyone.
Keeping Watch
Instead of chiming in with discussions of disease and media reports describing discord, I learned to listen for opportunities to share the good news of man’s wholeness and integrity as God’s expression.
Glimpses of Truth

Just one hour

Whether I am attending a church service virtually or in person, can I commit to making that hour one of alertness, of openness to receiving fresh messages of inspiration from my pastor, the Bible together with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy?

Testimony of Healing

Breathing freely again

The thought came to just say no to the symptoms. With each breath, I said vehemently, “No, no, no!”

No more flu

Glimpsing more clearly that God is the only Mind or power capable of thought and being, I felt my body conforming to this understanding, and I was completely healed of the flu symptoms within half a day.

Testimony of Healing

Immobility healed

I pondered what true mobility, or movement, is, praying about this for society as a whole as well as for myself.

Safe after a fall

I reasoned that I could lift myself above the impression of having been injured and in peril by realizing my unchanged spiritual nature and letting go of the material images and sensations associated with the experience.
Testimony of Healing

No more elbow pain

The fact that man (the true identity of each of us) is made in the image and likeness of God lifted my thought above body, bones, and material causes to an understanding of my spiritual identity as God’s expression. The profound truth of that statement was more captivating and attention-getting than the elbow pain.
