Spiritual Short

Only one mediator

From the October 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One day, after hearing more news about disagreement and impasse in negotiations between countries and leaders, I finally asked myself, “What’s needed here? What can I do to help bring unity and agreement to these meetings?”

The answer came, “What’s needed is spiritual mediation right where there seems to be confrontation.” But what is spiritual mediation? I knew that it didn’t have to do with believing in spirits, or anything otherworldly. But it had everything to do with the one divine Spirit, God.

The Bible says, “There is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (I Timothy 2:5). Then I discovered this statement from Mary Baker Eddy’s book No and Yes: “Jesus cast out evils, mediating between what is and is not, until a perfect consciousness is attained” (p. 31).
