GOOD COMMUNICATION

Communication has been defined as the activity of sharing or imparting ideas. Spiritually considered, this sharing is a joyous experience, for ideas flowing from the divine Mind are harmonious, healing, complete, and include the ability to express all perfectly. Mary Baker Eddy states in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 72): "The joy of intercourse becomes the jest of sin, when evil and suffering are communicable. Not personal intercommunion but divine law is the communicator of truth, health, and harmony to earth and humanity."

In order to reflect this communication of divine law and so know the joy of intercourse, there are four essential steps that we can take in preparation: first, we can be convinced of the value of the ideas we express; secondly, we can have a sincere desire to share these ideas with others; thirdly, we can have loving concern for the reception of these ideas by the listener; and fourthly, we can patiently strive and carefully work to put our ideas into an orderly arrangement that will be readily understandable to the hearer.
