Engaging with the news in a healing way

If we are caught up in the news these days and feeling despondent about what lies ahead for our country, or the world, or even for ourselves, we might consider what Moses said to a certain young man: “Would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!” (Numbers 11:29).

It’s a good way to approach the news—as a prophet. The Discoverer of Christian Science and founder of The Christian Science Monitor, Mary Baker Eddy, defined prophet as “a spiritual seer; disappearance of material sense before the conscious facts of spiritual Truth” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 593). As spiritual seers, we can look beyond every untoward event or disappointing newsmaker to see the truth of what God is doing right now, right here. That’s the real news of what is happening. And it’s always good.
