To Our Readers

"Man is properly self-governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by his Maker, divine Truth and Love" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 106). These words, written by Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health, provide a solid foundation for thinking about "government" of any kind. Government in a more loosely defined sense—the way we plan our day, go to work, go to lunch, go about the business of life. And government in its more traditional sense, including the governance of a city, state, country, or even global society. Either way, the basis of all good government lies in being "self-governed" by "divine Truth and Love."

Every person on earth has the privilege of listening for God's direction in making the scores of decisions that need to be made each day—individual, group, business, political, economic. And listening for this direction provides a framework of reasoning that goes way beyond mere scratching and clawing to come up with solutions and answers that might—or might not—contribute to the greater good of all.
