When I first laid eyes on Mary Trammell's article "Engaging with The Christian Science Monitor," in the November 24 issue of the Sentinel, I was put off by the abundant use of tedious formatting (italics, quotation marks, parentheses) and felt like passing over it and finding something else to read in that issue. But that inner voice prompted me to tackle it.
After a careful first reading, I decided to highlight in yellow all the italicized words, underline in red all the words in quotation marks, and circle in black all the words in parentheses. When I finally got the formatting sorted out in my thought, the message was very clear: I must "advance enough spiritually to bear witness to the full and flexible unfoldment of the Monitor's mission." A clearer understanding of the format gave a clearer understanding of the message. And the message is much more important than the format.
Could it not be that the new 24/7 online format of the Monitor will provide the world with a clearer understanding of "the Science that operates unspent"?
