All true communication begins with God

From the February 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The intercommunication is always from God to His idea, man.
—Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 284 

People who need to speak, or just love to speak, foreign languages often yearn to speak them with little or no trace of an accent—that is, without the superimposition of the inflections and rhythms of their native tongue.

But there is another way to interpret the idea of communicating without a foreign accent. We can see it as the ability to effectively convey a message on any subject to individuals in any and all age groups, or individuals of very different backgrounds, cultures, environments, and history, in, figuratively speaking, a “language” they can understand. That is, to communicate in such a way that will not invite resistance, but will reach, even bless, people right where they are in their experience. The ability to do this more effectively derives from the understanding that all true communication begins with God, all-inclusive Love, who is forever revealing, unfolding, and interpreting His will and plan for the harmony of creation.
