From the August 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Longing to share?

[Jan Klesse, “The native language of Science and Health,Journal, June 2021]

This article is such a help to those who have been longing to share Science and Health or who are praying for its reception. This article goes beyond that to giving us a way to think about receptivity in lectures, Reading Rooms, church services, and so on.

Inspired deeper study

[Barbara Fife, “Church—looking forward,” Journal, June 2021]

I am so grateful for this editorial. It has inspired me to do a deeper study on this topic. Thanks for sharing this with all of us as we move forward.

Better understanding

[Nicole Virgil, “Neutralizing racism with Truth,” Journal, June 2021]

The clarity Nicole Virgil presents helped me understand better my role in healing racism and in claiming the right of all of us to our spiritual identity as members of the one family of God. Many thanks for these frank and uplifting thoughts.

Dawn Rehnstrom

I so value Nicole’s humility in writing this article. She has elevated my thinking and given me a clearer understanding and perspective to use as I pray about the causes and effects of racism. I also appreciated her pointing out the importance of courageously and specifically addressing the lie(s) of racism. This reminded me that Truth sets free the accuser and the accused.

Encouraged to trust

Thanks for Brian Webster’s inspiring poem, “I never lost the Way” (Journal, April 2021). Those of us whose lives have been upended will surely be strengthened and so gently encouraged to trust “that Truth delivers from trials and lack and loss, / never changing as it rises . . . to celestial views.”

Gained new insights

The March 2021 Journal was a delight, and a special thanks for Sue A. Spotts’s article, “Never unreachable by God.” Not only did I gain new insights regarding the parable of the prodigal son, but I appreciated the question posed, “Is it really possible that I have arrived at a juncture where I am unreachable—where God . . . can’t break through the clamor of a supposed personal human mind and make Himself known to me in ways that inspire and heal?” Never!
