JOY — What a perfect subject to bring to a conclusion our series on “lasting values and spiritual qualities that animate everyone and make for human progress.” You can find the citations for all six topics in the series on our website: christiansciencechicago.org. The series was inspired by the above quote from Mark Sappenfield, Editor of The Christian Science Monitor international daily newspaper. The six topics are: Goodness or Righteousness, Grace, Justice, Courage, Humility, and Joy. Feel free to make your own list of lasting values and spiritual qualities that animate everyone and make for human progress. Seeing and affirming that mankind possesses these spiritual qualities right now is a potent prayer that helps the whole world.
