Facing down fear

Reading the headlines, it can sometimes seem there’s little choice but to be afraid. But when we start from a spiritual basis, rather than judging what’s going on around us through the lens of materiality, we find that overcoming fear really is possible

What sets the captive free?

The healing Christ that Jesus expressed is present at every moment to open the doors of thought and set us free from imprisoning ailments, even long-standing ones.

Contributing to a better mental atmosphere

What might happen if we more often considered what kind of atmosphere we’re contributing to at home, at work, out running errands, or even at the polls?

Go beyond party lines – be a healer!

Even the smallest conversation among people with differing political viewpoints can provide an opportunity for God’s love for all of us to shine through.

A love that keeps on loving

A teenager who had to give her child up for adoption learned we can never be separated from those we love because God is Love, and we are united forever with one another in this Love.

Supporting good government

By truly letting God’s law of good govern us, we are contributing to the reign of peace in our world.

Countering hopelessness when violence looms

Today’s contributor explains how prayer brought hope rather than fear when she heard about a potentially violent confrontation.


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.
