As people and governments around the world persevere in efforts to end the coronavirus pandemic, one important way we can all help is to affirm that there is no place where God’s healing love isn’t present, or where our spiritual understanding of God’s presence cannot be of help to others. As “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer of Christian Science, describes: “The ‘still, small voice’ of scientific thought reaches over continent and ocean to the globe’s remotest bound. The inaudible voice of Truth is, to the human mind, ‘as when a lion roareth.’ It is heard in the desert and in dark places of fear” (p. 559).
The many verified accounts of Christian Science healings from all over the globe illustrate just how true this is. Here’s a taste of that: a selection of pieces from the JSH-Online archives that speak profoundly to God’s power to heal – including in contagious or life-threatening situations. These particular testifiers hail from India, Canada, Brazil, and the United States. May the ideas and spiritual truths found in their heartfelt accounts inspire your own prayers for your families, communities, and the world, too.
