Editor’s note: Dedication of a branch church or society is a public affirmation of the importance of Church in the lives of Christian Scientists and in the community. When an edifice is free of debt, churches and societies often hold a dedicatory service.

Dear Reader, Let’s talk about the future of the Christian Science magazines. You could think of these magazines— The Christian Science Journal, the Christian Science Sentinel, and The Herald of Christian Science —as a conversation with humanity.
Dear Members and Friends, When Skip Phinney told us of his desire to step down from serving on the Christian Science Board of Directors at the end of December, we were tempted to try to talk him out of it.

Dear Members and Friends, We are very happy to let you know that Barbara Fife, CSB, of Vancouver, Canada, has assumed the office of Clerk of The Mother Church as of October 1, 2018.

Whether you read the print editions of The Christian Science Journal and Sentinel exclusively or also subscribe to JSH-Online. com, we deeply value your commitment to the healing ideas we publish and are always grateful for your feedback.
