To stop a contagion

Some are predicting this year’s flu season will be the worst in a decade, and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that dozens of states across the country are reporting earlier than usual spikes in flu activity. People are being urged to get flu shots and to take other measures to avoid this contagious disease.

Christian Scientists can help to alleviate the situation. Mary Baker Eddy, who founded Christian Science, wrote, “At a time of contagious disease, Christian Scientists endeavor to rise in consciousness to the true sense of the omnipotence of Life, Truth, and Love, and this great fact in Christian Science realized will stop a contagion” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 116).
