We wanted to let you know that our dear friend and colleague Warren Bolon passed on July 28. All those who had the privilege of knowing Warren will remember his kindness, his calm and thoughtful presence, his astute metaphysical insight—and a host of other unique and wonderful qualities. His love for Mary Baker Eddy’s teachings and the Church she founded showed itself unmistakably, each day, in the way he lived and worked.
Most recently, Warren had been serving as Managing Editor for The Christian Science Journal. Under his watch the magazine, including its fledgling online activities, took on a depth and dignity that brought ongoing compliments and expressions of gratitude. Warren served the Church in various capacities since he came to Boston in 1977. His profound contribution to the Journal, Sentinel, and Herald Department began when the Christian Science magazines responded to the 9/11 attacks and in the process largely transformed their publishing work.
Those who wish to see Warren’s gentle smile once more might be inspired to look—as we know he would—to Mary Baker Eddy’s counsel. And many on the staff have been finding true comfort in remarks she made at the passing of Joseph Armstrong, CSD. “. . . his works do follow him,” she wrote. “The mortal dream of life, substance, or mind in matter, has been lessened, and the reward of good and punishment of evil and the waking out of his Adam-dream of evil will end in harmony,—evil powerless, and God, good, omnipotent and infinite” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 296).
