Unselfing the season

There’s a gift we can all freely give and receive that comes from the heart: unselfed love impelled by God, which uplifts and heals.

Headed in the right direction? Let God steer.

Sometimes humanity’s problems can feel overwhelming, and we may struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But letting God, divine Love, steer our thoughts and actions opens the door to unity, healing, and progress.

‘That they all may be one’

There’s much, it seems, that would divide us. But we recognize that there’s more, much more, that unites us when we understand everyone’s oneness with God.

Praying about mental health

A contributor was healed of hereditary bipolar disorder as she learned more about the nature of God as the gentle, consistent divine Mind.

Volunteering in this election – to pray

Wanting to feel that he’s doing everything he can to support the upcoming U.S. presidential election, an experienced political campaign staffer and volunteer has committed himself to being a “prayer volunteer.”

Prayer for the judiciary

What does the legendary wisdom of the biblical King Solomon have to do with us today? Considering the idea that everyone has a God-given capacity to express wisdom, humility, and fairness opens the door to experiencing more of those qualities right here and now.

Responding, not reacting, to hostility

When we’re faced with anger or incivility, in the heat of the moment it can be tempting to react in kind. But pausing to let God, Love, inspire our response enables us to proceed in a thoughtful, patient, healing manner.

Watch for the light of Christ – today!

The world, or even our individual lives, can seem dark sometimes. But the eternal light of Christ, divine Truth, is always here to guide us forward to peace, healing, and joy.

Healing of sudden chest pains

Struggling to breathe and starting to lose consciousness, a woman turned to God in heartfelt prayer. This brought a tangible feeling of God’s love for her, and in very short order she was completely well.

After the fires, a ‘still small voice’

Today’s contributor explores the power of God’s limitless love to support, sustain, and empower individuals and communities, even in the face of overwhelming and tragic situations. When we heard about the fires being battled in California, we immediately thought of this piece, which originally ran during the fires there last fall. 


About the Healing Perspectives

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.
