The Virginia Churchman

The Virginia Churchman Richmond, Virginia

The Article, "What does your body know?" (July issue of The Virginia Churchman), addresses a topic of growing interest today. [The author] makes several pertinent assessments concerning the subject of health and the whole person with which many would undoubtedly agree. Readers who are acquainted with the Christian Scientist's posture toward the field of medicine, however, may feel it a categorical misassessment to believe he "would deny the validity of the medical profession altogether." On the contrary, the Christian Scientist practices the Golden Rule with regard to doctors as much as to anyone else. He has great respect for their motives, skills, and selfless dedication, and he acknowledges the right of every man to turn to the method of healing of his own choice. It could not be denied that many people find comfort and relief with the help of the medical profession.
