From its founding, Christian Science was described not simply as a Church but as a new religious movement. It remains new in heart and spirit. As someone once said, "A movement moves." Articles on the subject of Church and movement appear regularly in this section.

God's angels at work today

From the May 1990 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Most of us have had times in our lives when the routine ups and downs of life have been pushed aside by some new and drastic challenge. Perhaps we've suddenly run into fierce personal attack—hatred, prejudice, or unyielding opposition of some sort. It may almost seem we have been thrust back into a Biblical time of persecution, a time of lions' dens and fiery furnaces.

At such times there is need for rising to the occasion and finding we have the courage of a contemporary Daniel or Shadrach.

Right in the midst of such challenges it is possible to have the aid of two powerful helpers named Michael and Gabriel. Michael characterizes the spiritual strength that "fights the holy wars," and Gabriel expresses the tender presence of Love. Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy explains how they can help.
