Dear Members and Friends,
Testimony of Healing
When my mom came home, my dad pointed to me and at the top of his voice told her, “That child healed me.”
Testimony of Healing
I continued diligently pondering the depth of each name for God, letting my consciousness be filled with the endless good qualities they express. As I let these qualities envelop me, I felt an even deeper sense of God’s presence, and along with it, an inner calm.

Editorial
Wanting to make a difference for humankind is more than a positive outlook on the world. It’s the result of the spiritual impulse in human consciousness called the Christ.
Article

Home for the marginalized

When we abandon our false concepts of what true home is, we find that the kingdom of God truly is within us and at hand, as Christ Jesus promised. And we find each step of the way that the human home we seek represents the home and heaven that were always there in consciousness.

Living in God’s world

Testimony of Healing
I am very grateful to God, who, in the words of the Psalmist, “brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock” (Psalms 40:2).
Testimony of Healing

Injured toes restored

I reasoned that my God-given substance was the substance of an idea, and must be as invulnerable as God is. 
Testimony of Healing

Deep wound healed

The law of God had overruled any supposed physical laws about man conflicting with material objects, overruled physiology—the notion that man is made of flesh and blood—and overruled the thought that man can be cast off, severed, from his God, from Love itself.
Testimony of Healing

Healing of internal pain

I bowed my head and listened for an angel message from God. What happened next was a rehearsal of all the healings I had experienced in my life. One after another they came to thought.

Testimony of Healing
I realized that the spiritual breakthrough could still be quick, no matter how long this had been going on. Spiritual inspiration inevitably leads to healing.
Testimony of Healing
I did my best to constantly redirect my thinking away from preoccupation with what might happen and back to the present moment, keeping things simple and just cherishing God’s present care.
Testimony of Healing
Was I going to let a limited, material view of the employment situation bring me down with discouragement, jealousy, and self-pity, or was I going to take a spiritual view and trust that God meets every need abundantly?

A renewed life

Cultivating not only a heart that yearns to understand God as Spirit but also a willingness to identify and let go of materialistic ways of thinking, is central to the practice of Christian Science.
Article
Turning to this perfect Mind to know how to think and act, pausing to listen to wisdom in place of the impulses of a false sense of self, we steer clear of the minefield of reactionary, negative behavior and learn and live more of the divine nature.

I found that in seeing myself as the expression of God, divine Love, I was giving others the opportunity to see me that way, too. And I found that I was able to see and honor each individual’s unique identity while recognizing, above all, our brotherhood and sisterhood as children of God.

Knee pain swiftly healed

As my husband and I went for a walk, I gave God a silent “thank you” with each step.

Editorial
When called to do so, we too can perform duties that limit our sleep “without harm” to ourselves—whether completing a deadlined project, or responding to an urgent request for healing prayer. This isn’t about powering through on the promised adrenalin of human will, but about letting that communing with God open our thoughts to a profound peace that’s always inherent in us as God’s offspring.
Article

Sleeping well

Prayer has led me to not be preoccupied with screens or email when I go to bed but to cherish that time as quiet time with God, a time for listening for thoughts from God.
Article
I aspire to prove that a spiritual, prayer-based effort offers the surest protection because it addresses the essential problem: the belief that matter and material laws rule our lives. Each proof that life is governed by Spirit, not human beliefs about contagion, is a step toward finding the way out of the limits and destructive nature of the belief of life in matter.

Testimony of Healing
The fear began to fade, and my prayers gained strength and momentum. My trust in God’s constant, tender care reassured me that nothing could harm me. 
Testimony of Healing
I thought of Mary Baker Eddy’s definition of “the proof of healing” as “a sweet and certain sense that God is Love” (Science and Health, p. 569). I really felt that sweet and certain sense of the presence of Love with me. 
Testimony of Healing
I returned on the second day at the base hospital to complete the reserve weekend, where my doctor friends were incredulous. We spent the day talking about Christian Science and how prayer heals.
