The joy of growing spiritually

From the June 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal


If you think it’s odd to feel that deep study, prayer, and spiritual growth in Christian Science are joyous—well, consider this: What’s not deeply joy-filled about beginning to understand and prove the limitless possibilities of overcoming the limitations and inharmonies of matter? What’s not inspiring about beginning step by step to prove that matter, with all its boasting claims of being real substance, isn’t what it appears to be? Mary Baker Eddy described a period of deep study after her discovery of Christian Science. She searched the Bible to find out more about what lay behind the significant healing she’d experienced at that time.
