The Healing Action of Spirit

From the September 1975 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When we speak of a team, country, or individual as having "spirit," we are referring to an active, yet unseen, complex of unity, confidence, vitality, energy, enthusiasm, pluck, and courage that enables one to win—to triumph over opposition and adversity, no matter how impossible it may seem. The word "spirit" is far from uncommon in everyday conversation, yet for many, when the term is used in connection with God, it takes on an aura of mystery, or the unknown.
