A Seekers & Scholars Podcast - The Christian Science Monitor, social work, and Boston’s settlement houses for immigrants

Seekers & scholars podcast

For many readers, The Christian Science Monitor is best known for its international focus and values-based approach. But in the Monitor’s earliest years, it also gave significant attention to events and developments in its home city of Boston - which was undergoing major demographic changes around the time of the newspaper’s 1908 founding, in the middle of the Progressive Era. One of the developing forms of social service was an institution known as the settlement house, an educational initiative designed to help new immigrants adapt to and succeed in American society.

Enjoy inspiring ideas from this week's Bible Lesson


September 11 to 17

...having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Galatians 3:3

"Question. — What is the scientific statement of being?

Answer. — There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual." Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 468:8–15
