"I am so happy to witness the increased interest in spirituality."
One "Items of interest" column captioned "Missed the millennium?" quoted from a TIME magazine. Not understanding the term millennium, I found myself dreading the future until I read this definition in Webster's Third New International Dictionary: "The thousand years mentioned in Revelation 20 during which holiness is to be triumphant and Christ is to reign on earth; a period of ... great happiness or perfect government or freedom from ... imperfections of human existence."
This eased my concerns. But when I read a statement by Mary Baker Eddy, I appreciated the meaning in its fullest: "The millennium is a state and stage of mental advancement, going on since ever time was. Its impetus, accelerated by the advent of Christian Science, is marked, and will increase till all men shall know Him (divine Love) from the least to the greatest, and one God and the brotherhood of man shall be known and acknowledged throughout the earth" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, pp. 239–240).
