YOUR QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Following the example set by the question-and-answer columns in the early Journals, when Mary Baker Eddy was Editor, this column will respond to general queries from Journal readers–such as the one above–with responses from Journal readers. You'll find information at the end of the column about how to submit questions.
