Glimpsing true womanhood leads to healing

When Mary Baker Eddy writes about womanhood, she always uses spiritual, not physical, descriptions. For example, a paragraph in Science and Health has the marginal heading "Ideal man and woman." In the text she explains, "... God made man in His own image, to reflect the divine Spirit. It follows that man is a generic term. Masculine, feminine, and neuter genders are human concepts" (p. 516).

This concept has been especially helpful to me as a woman athlete. Last summer I was particularly enjoying watching Women's World Cup Soccer. The qualities of dominion, poise, and strength the female players brought to a sport known worldwide as a "man's game" were inspiring.
