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. 

You can never be obsolete

A more spiritual view of employment brought practical solutions after technological advances forced today’s contributor to shift gears with her career.

What’s constant in uncertain times?

In these days of lockdowns and “safer-at-home” orders around the world, it can seem hard to find a sense of normalcy. But as a woman from Melbourne, Australia, has found, God-given qualities of strength, joy, and peace are a constant in our lives, there for us to feel and express even when it seems life has been turned upside down.

Underlying conditions’ that heal

It can sometimes seem that our health is at the mercy of forces beyond our control. But the idea that we are God’s pure and whole spiritual offspring can bring renewed health and harmony into our lives.

A more healing response to news alerts

More often than not the news of today gives rise to fear, division, and anger. But we can challenge this pull and instead remain calm, clear, and focused on what God is knowing – which enables us to be a part of the solution, instead of the problem.

Finding a joy that can’t be masked

In a world where face coverings have become ubiquitous, it can sometimes feel as if we’re losing part of our identity. But no mask can keep us from expressing our God-given joy and individuality. 


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.
