The Christian Science Monitor: central to our healing practice

From the January 2015 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The year that Mary Baker Eddy established The Christian Science Monitor , its Editor-in-Chief, Archibald McLellan, wrote that Christian Scientists were “requested to subscribe for the Monitor”  because its success rested solely on their support, though they alone would not be interested in a paper of such high quality and “character” ( Christian Science Sentinel,   October 17, 1908 ). More than simply subscribe to the Monitor,  or read it, the expectation was that Christian Scientists everywhere would engage with its content on a deeply spiritual level, in order to help meet humanity’s pressing need for stability, justice, peace, and healing, in a challenging world.
