TRADING POVERTY FOR PERFECTION, ONE LIFE AT A TIME

ABOUT ONE BILLION PEOPLE LIVE IN EXTREME POVERTY (about $1 or less per day), and 1.5 billion are just above subsistence living ($2 or less). Together, they represent 40 percent of humanity. Disease, physical isolation (areas where development isn't practical, for instance), poor nutrition, lack of education, women's/human rights issues, war, ethnic rivalries, national and international bureaucracies, all play a role.

Christian Science has the capacity to cross "continent and ocean to the globe's remotest bound" (Science and Health, p. 559) and to bring healing solutions to light. With this in mind, spirituality.com is beginning a weekly series for the next few months that will address different aspects of poverty. Some articles present a more theoretical perspective; others deal very specifically with personal experiences. The writers of these segments represent many nations around the globe—the United Kingdom, Turkey, Japan, United States, Australia, the Philippines, and India, among others.
