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 with responses from Journal readers. You’ll find information at the end of the column about how to submit questions. Readers are also encouraged to go to Charpter III of Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, by Mary Baker Eddy — “Questions and Answers.”
