Letters & Conversations


From the June 2004 issue of The Christian Science Journal

What a good article in the March Journal, "Qualities of beauty that touch the heart" [p. 40]. It brought my attention to the great beauty above all other beauties. Places where the moral standard is highly expressed will burst into a more beautiful atmosphere, and since beauty is everlasting, it means that God is in that place. Striving for good deeds always is the beautiful part that touches the heart.

I just want to thank you, the editors, and most especially the writer of the [February] article "The divine Parent has a plan you can trust," Rebecca Odegaard [p. 45]. The problem of barrenness, miscarriages, fear of childlessness, is a major problem in Nigeria, particularly, and in Africa in general. There is always the tendency for every barren woman in Nigeria to be separated from her husband, not necessarily by choice of her husband, but because of extended family and relations. The writer said, "It's a mistake to believe that the divine Giver is withholding something good, or something necessary for wholeness." I quickly made available some copies of the magazine for friends and brothers who are in such need. Four out of the ten families I sent the article to have asked for Science and Health. They are now studying it.
