Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures

Its Impact on the Family

From the March 1975 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Can humanity cope with the problems resulting from changing concepts of family life? Are the cords of love that have given the family coherence in the past strong enough and long enough to hold it together now? The search for the answer must continue until home and all relationships rest on a wholly spiritual basis.

The spiritual reality and power of the teaching in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy create a natural spiritual atmosphere for home and family life; comfort, wisdom, resourcefulness, and love give thorough coherence and specific guidance, but not merely through human reasoning. The teaching of Science and Health is in every instance a divine demand. It points out how to find and establish our true relationship with God so that we may work in accord with His law of harmony.

From Science and Health both parents can learn how to overcome anxiety and fears by recognizing God not only as Father, but also as Mother, of all. In preparation for birth, both parents can daily turn their thinking from material laws and limitations to new realizations of the fatherhood and motherhood of God, learning that Life is pure, perfectly formed, and unblemished; that man possesses strength, supply, and energy from Spirit, not from matter.
