As we were putting this issue to bed...

From the October 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As we were putting this issue to bed, it occurred to me that here in New England, October means putting gardens to bed, too. It brings to mind the statement from Second Timothy (4:2) in the Bible, to “be instant in season, out of season”—challenging us to turn, instantly, to God’s eternal presence, no matter what shifts may be taking place in our lives. 

We hope you’ll find that fresh turning point in the Journal’s pages this month. As part of our ongoing series on the tenets of Christian Science, Beverley Beddoes-Mills sheds practical light on the second tenet, speaking to why “adoring” God goes so much further than words. “It requires a commitment to reflect Him in all the minutiæ of our daily lives,” she says. 

In another piece, Barbara Vining leads us to explore “The Significance of God Being One,” as we identify ourselves with God, Mind—recalling a colleague’s comment that “you can’t drive a wedge between one!”
