A WORD FROM OUR EXECUTIVE MANAGER

These are challenging days, and we want to join hands with you—to leaven despair with hope. Wipe out hate with love. Listen and act with courage, compassion, and faith. Our namesake, Mary Baker Eddy, wrote: “Our heavenly Father never destined mortals who seek for a better country to wander on the shores of time disappointed travellers, tossed to and fro by adverse circumstances, inevitably subject to sin, disease, and death” (Message to The Mother Church for 1902, p. 11). For over 150 years, Eddy’s ideas, grounded in the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, have touched people and their communities with healing—sometimes under the most difficult circumstances. We look forward to opening our doors in Boston to you soon. In the meantime, we will continue to share content and ideas that we hope will inspire and uplift, and help you to help others. Let’s step forward together.

—Michael W. Hamilton
