Accident, handicaps, age, unemployment, poor health, and lack of education are all ways by which we may think that we can be reduced to uselessness. But in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy challenges such a conclusion. She declares, "Because man-made systems insist that man becomes sick and useless, suffers and dies, all in consonance with the laws of God, are we to believe it?" (p. 168).
This week's issue explains why material systems cannot outline the past, present, or future of God's children. For the "in focus" section, one author tells how a woman dealt with a feeling of uselessness that was so severe, she was tempted to consider suicide. The other writer deals with the challenges of ageism. This magazine also features a special section (pp. 20–23) directed toward the Paralympics in Atlanta, Georgia, which come on the heels of the Olympic Games.
