From the March 1999 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In A Sermon On Christian Healing given in Boston in 1880, Journal founder Mary Baker Eddy declared, "We are in the midst of a revolution; physics are yielding slowly to metaphysics; mortal mind rebels at its own boundaries; weary of matter, it would catch the meaning of Spirit" We see one significant sign of this in the continued interest in spiritual healing—a term that admittedly has widely different meanings to people. A related issue of growing interest and ethical concern today is death and dying.
