The Christian Science Monitor’s core promise and a new digital product

From the June 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Originally published in the May 15, 2017, Christian Science Sentinel.

Editor’s note: Mark Sappenfield is Editor of The Christian Science Monitor.

When Mary Baker Eddy took the first issue of The Christian Science Monitor in her hands and called that morning “the lightest day of all days,” she was making a promise to the members of the Church of Christ, Scientist, and to the world (see Irving C. Tomlinson, Twelve Years with Mary Baker Eddy, Amplified Edition, pp. 125–126).

In some ways, it has been the best-kept secret in journalism.
