The Heralds proclaim the language of Spirit

Magazines with a Universal Mission

Some months ago while holidaying in Switzerland my family and I set out for the base of the Matterhorn. We were soon joined by a young Japanese student, who was glad to have company and in due course asked about my occupation. My reply led to his questioning me in his limited English about Christian Science.

During the course of our conversation I joyfully recalled that on leaving our hotel I had thrown three current copies of The Herald of Christian Science into my haversack. One of these was the Japanese Edition! Thus it was possible to offer the young man something authoritative on Christian Science in his own language on the foothills of a Swiss mountain. What could have seemed a less likely setting for sharing the Herald? He gladly accepted it.

This experience brought home to me the potential usefulness of the Heralds in awakening humanity to the power of Christ, Truth, and their necessary place beside the other Christian Science periodicals. In the above instance, an editorial, articles, and testimonies on Christian Science—together with the addresses of Churches of Christ, Scientist, and Christian Science practitioners—were made available in his native tongue to someone halfway around the world from his own country. Incidentally, as a direct result of his receiving the magazine, after reaching his homeland the young man duly sought out a local practitioner in order to learn more.
