Loving and embracing our digital community

From the April 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mary Baker Eddy describes how she felt after being healed of life-threatening injuries from a fall on the ice: “Being was beautiful, its substance, cause, and currents were God and His idea. I had touched the hem of Christian Science” (Retrospection and Introspection, p. 23). 

This experience was a game changer, for it changed her life and consequently the lives of countless others from that time forward. She had been seeking a better understanding of God and of how Jesus healed, and by God’s good grace and the receptivity in her heart, she had caught a substantial glimpse of God’s presence and power. 

This emergence into light redeemed, restored, and resurrected her experience in such a profound way that we are still blessed by it today. “Being [is] beautiful,” and those who are seeking a higher power and healing through the teachings of Christian Science will also find that “its substance, cause, and currents [are] God and His idea.” We too can emerge from darkness into light.
