Cover Article



From the February 2007 issue of The Christian Science Journal

WITHIN MOST RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS, the masculine nature of God has been favored and the feminine largely overlooked. Only in the last few decades have references to God in feminine terms become more common. Yet over 100 years ago, Mary Baker Eddy reintroduced the Genesis 1 concept of God, which includes the balance of both the feminine and masculine nature of the one Creator. In her book Science and Health, she identified God as being both our divine Mother and Father. One Parent, feminine and masculine together.

As each of us continuously broadens our perceptions of the true nature of God, we will—and in turn humanity will—gradually reach the full understanding of the allness, the wholeness, the absolute perfection of the one universal Mother-Father God of us all.

In the following articles, writers share their unique experience of how they've come to understand that the feminine nature of God—our divine Mother—weaves through all our lives in myriad forms, and how this understanding has blessed their own lives and the lives of others.
