The Journal's distinct purpose

From the May 1998 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Dear Friends,

As each issue arrives in subscribers' mailboxes worldwide, the readers, along with all of the staff members working together to publish The Christian Science Journal, naturally feel deep appreciation for the ongoing mission and purpose of this magazine. Since its founding, the distinct purpose of the Journal has been clearly defined. As Mary Baker Eddy expressed it, the Journal is "designed to put on record the divine Science of Truth" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 353).

Readers, contributors, and editors are all entrusted to play a part in responding to the public's demand for pure, clear explanations of divine Science, or God's laws. Each month, the Journal puts on record in people's hearts the presence and efficacy of the laws of God, which regenerate and heal. Articles, testimonies, and editorials discuss the metaphysics of Christian Science and provide specific illustrations of how thought and experience have changed for the better as the result of prayer. The Journal is a voice declaring the good news that the Comforter is active and present to heal sin and sickness.
