From the April 2007 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In class one day, the teacher points to you and warns that because of your fair skin, you should stay out of the sun. (Too much could be harmful.) Or she says that because your relative had a certain disease, you may have inherited the same gene.

While this information is meant to be helpful, it's based on the human theory that we're basically made of matter.

However, 15, and 16, believe that reality runs more than skin deep. Barrett and Johannes have done some serious thinking about basic life question such as, Who am I? What am I made of? They shared some of their thoughts with Journal staff editor Suzanne Smedley.
