Why ...?

I have given the name to all the Christian Science periodicals. The first was The Christian Science Journal, designed to put on record the divine Science of Truth; the second I entitled Sentinel, intended to hold guard over Truth, Life, and Love; the third, Der Herold der Christian Science, to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth; the next I named Monitor, to spread undivided the Science that operates unspent. The object of the Monitor is to injure no man, but to bless all mankind.

—Mary Baker Eddy, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 353

Why write for the Christian Science periodicals?

From the May 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

After Christ Jesus fed the hungry multitude, he asked that the fragments of the meal be gathered up so nothing would be lost. What remained after everyone was satisfied filled twelve baskets—a telling sign of God’s abundant provision, as well as a lesson in the wise conservation of divine blessings.
