As I read the issue of March 14 on the environment, three articles jumped out at me. I am very grateful for the inspiration and motivation I gained from them—"Practicing earth-care" by Dorrit Kjaer Christiansen, "A better environment—it's your choice" by Chaning Walker, and "I have things to do" by Elise Rindfleisch. They took me on a spiritual journey, and made me understand that environmental issues challenging my own neighborhood and nation, if not corrected, bring about the deterioration of civilization.

Problems like garbage burning, using rivers and gullies as garbage bins, pollution of air, water, and earth by industrial processes, and deforestation, are challenges we are facing every day. As a practical, demonstrable view of life, Christian Science gives us the means, through prayers and actions, not to take an indifferent, ivory tower position. It's up to each of us to embrace the whole universe, moment to moment, in our loving thoughts. And naturally we can make a difference.

Are you a master of change?
