Dear Fellow Members and Friends,
In order to facilitate a smooth transition, we are letting you know in advance [April 17, 2014] that the Board of Directors intends to elect David Kennedy, C.S.B., of Naples, Florida, as the next JSH Editor. He will succeed Dorothy Estes, C.S.B., who has served in that capacity for the past three years.
Readers of our periodicals and visitors to JSH-Online have experienced over the years the progress and continuing development of these basic Manual activities established by Mary Baker Eddy. They are a primary source of inspiration and shared healing for members and spiritually minded individuals throughout the world. Working closely with the entire editorial and publishing team for these periodicals, Dorothy has listened for divine Mind’s direction on how to keep these publications fresh and “abreast of the times.” From her first day in the office Dorothy has had a joyous receptivity to God’s guidance in bringing “newness” and “freshness” to these magazines. “It’s been a privilege to participate in responding to God’s direction and to the needs and interests of the magazines’ audiences,” Dorothy comments. She adds, with her characteristic enthusiasm, “I have loved serving Church in this way these past three years and am so delighted that David will be stepping into the Editor position.” Dorothy will again be devoting full time to her practice of healing and to her teaching.
