From the August 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Thank you for Margaret Rogers’s editorial “Except God” in the July 2012 Journal. Rogers makes the point that with divine power, difficult world problems can be untied by starting and continuing with prayer. 

It prompted my recollection of summer camp days when we learned the names for all kinds of knots: bowline, clove hitch, square knot, and more. In my innocent youth, it never occurred to me that a knot couldn’t be untied, no matter what its name. 

Similarly today, despite the name assigned to a disease, we can be mindful about addressing the knotty problem prayerfully, so as to help and heal ourselves and others.
