In Selecting the contents for a particular Journal issue, we seek a balance between articles that speak to an individual's need for healing, and those that call on the healer that anyone can be. But in fact, the distinction between the two often isn't so evident. While it's natural for readers to gravitate toward articles that address their personal needs, people are finding more and more that they are healed in the process of expanding their efforts to help and heal others.
Contributing editor Beulah Roegge illustrates this point in her article on praying for the economy. A foundational teaching of Christian Science is that all human needs are met by divine Love, by the Father in heaven to whom we pray in the Lord's Prayer. A book review and this month's editorial explore some of the inexhaustible healing ideas in this great prayer. We invite you not only to apply the insights in each article to your own needs, but to embrace everyone hungering to realize the kingdom, power, and glory of God on earth as in heaven.
