Change in editor of the Christian Science periodicals

With his heart full of gratitude for more than 40 years of service to The Mother Church and The Christian Science Publishing Society, Bill Dawley has resigned his position as Editor of the Christian Science periodicals, effective June 6, Annual Meeting Day, to dedicate full time to the healing practice he loves so much.

First hired by The Christian Science Monitor in 1968 as copy editor for the sports page, Bill later worked for the Monitor in various positions, including as a newscaster for the World Service of The Christian Science Monitor. Later, he served as Assistant Manager of the Church History Department. For the last 19 years he’s devoted his talents to The Christian Science Journal, Sentinel, and Herald—as Features Editor, as Managing Editor for the Heralds, and as Editor since 2003. During that time he coauthored The Reforming Power of the Scriptures with Mary Trammell, and became a Christian Science practitioner. As Editor, Bill has emphasized journalistic professionalism, nurtured a corps of new writers from around the world, and brought fresh focus to the subjects of practice and Church.
