Safety amid violent conflict – Brian Kissock CSB reflects on what comforted and inspired him and kept him safe during a dangerous time in Northern Ireland.

March 28th, 2018

“A thought came to me strongly to look in the rear of the stall. When I did, in that split second, I saw a bomb there.”

People around the world have been galvanized into considering what can be done to face up to both gun crime and terrorism. Young folk have been energized to march in cities demanding action. Leaders and organizations have advocated for various solutions.
Amid the important conversations taking place along those lines, I’ve found there is great value in…..Read More

Each weekday, the Monitor includes one clearly labeled religious article offering spiritual insight on contemporary issues, including the news. The publication – in its various forms – is produced for anyone who cares about the progress of the human endeavor around the world and seeks news reported with compassion, intelligence, and an essentially constructive lens. For many, that caring has religious roots. For many, it does not. The Monitor has always embraced both audiences. The Monitor is owned by a church – The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston – whose founder was concerned with both the state of the world and the quality of available news.

Meet Hilary. She was diagnosed with M.E. disease (chronic fatigue syndrome) and couldn’t find a medical solution. She later accepted a Christian Science practitioner’s offer to pray for her, and within months she recovered fully.

Sara was nominee for Best Singer-Songwriter at the 2017 San Diego Music Awards. She takes her inspiration from nature and the nearby ocean, always writing outdoors, where inspiration can strike at any moment, and usually does. “I’m fueled by nature. When I’m writing or wandering the woods or the beach I can hear the whisperings of my heart. There are melodies in nature and I scoop them up and take them home.”

After earning her degree, she spent four years as Director of the Foundation for Biblical Research in New Hampshire which provided workshops for lay people conducted by leading Bible scholars, as well as professional development opportunities for clergy and other church leaders.

The law of harmony and Christian Science healing – Josh Niles Saturday, March 3, 2018

March 2nd, 2018

Fallbrook, CA – The law of harmony and Christian Science healing
Date
Saturday, March 3, 2018
This event starts at 11:00 AM.

Josh Niles, Speaker

Niles didn’t know how he was going to make it another day, let alone another seven weeks. He had just finished his first week of Army Ranger School – an intense combat leadership course which has been called “the most physically and mentally demanding leadership school the Army has to offer.” He was exhausted and had no idea how he could continue.

But then, during a non-denominational Christian church service, something happened. As they sang hymns together, Niles felt the presence of Love. He’d learned from reading the Bible that God is Love, and what he felt during that service was definitely divine. It was the all-embracing presence of God, and it reminded him that he wasn’t on his own having to muscle his way forward. God, Love itself, was actually leading and supporting him. This new understanding enabled him to complete Ranger School successfully.

What Niles felt that day wasn’t just something special for him, but a divine law or rule that governs all our lives, just like the principles of math unfailingly govern the relationships between numbers. It was God’s law of harmony. Find out more in this lecture. Niles is a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing.

A role for world’s schools in ending sexual harassment and abuse

February 28th, 2018

This article appeared in the February 28, 2018 edition of the Monitor Daily. by By Sara Miller Llana Staff writer

In many countries, schools are where children can freely ask the question, “Why?” That’s the reason many see the classroom as a powerful forum in which to challenge entrenched behaviors and assumptions.

“Black Panther’ challenges limits on identity

February 21st, 2018

This article appeared in the February 20, 2018 edition of the Monitor Daily (The 30 Sec. Read)

Consider what the new superhero film “Black Panther” does for black identity as well as women’s identity – and even for the cool factor of science and engineering. Mothers and fathers across the racial spectrum report children excited to put their 3-D glasses on and feel the Dolby percussion as they’re transported to the good-versus-evil battles over the make-believe, high-tech (and ahead-of-the-world) nation of Wakanda…….to read more click here

Leg trouble gone – A testimony of healing from the Christian Science Sentinel by Cheryl DeSanctis

February 19th, 2018

Listen to how this individual overcame a physical pain she was experiencing in her leg.

One day, after a wonderful day of Christian Science nursing training, I was walking back with one of my classmates when I felt my left leg hurting a bit. I wasn’t able to move it as freely as I normally could. I didn’t think too much of it at first and carried on with some activities as I got back home.

After praying for a while and feeling mentally clear, rightly standing up mentally for what was true of God and God’s creation, I went to eat dinner with friends. After dinner, I did some work and was still praying all the while—calmly acknowledging harmony as a law and spiritual existence as the only existence.

However, suggestions such as “This could get worse,” or “Maybe you won’t be able to perform in class tomorrow,” started coming to my thought…………Click here to read more or to listen
