In Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Australia, Canada, Europe, and Asia, shortwave radio broadcasts of the Christian Science Sentinel and The Herald of Christian Science are reaching a large audience. We thought our readers might enjoy adaptations from some of these radio programs.

Christian Science Radio Broadcasts

Spiritual poise or pose?

Bea Roegge: Our thesis is that we can develop a spiritual poise that is so sound that we don't have to whistle in the dark or pretend to be something that we aren't. Today we have in the studio a friend from Kansas City, Missouri, Jean Stark Hebenstreit, who, as a teenager, began to find her spiritual poise and her understanding of Christian Science. Tell us about it, Jean.

Jean Stark Hebenstreit: Well, I was brought up in the Christian Science Sunday School, so I had for a long time been aware that God is Love, and that God is omnipresent, but I had to gain a greater understanding of the practical import of it in my life. One isn't born a Christian Scientist any more than one is born a pianist. There comes a time when each one has to reason through his own concept of theology for himself.

Bea: I'm glad to hear that, because I wasn't brought up in Christian Science.
