Betty P. –
Margaret Laird’s book “We Are the World We Walk Through” is a big eye-opener for me. It resonates and answers or addresses questions regarding Science that continue to unfold, and religious questions I’ve had trouble with, things like the “virgin birth” and Mary Baker Eddy fitting Science into a Christian mold – that I’d tried to believe, but found mystfying.
I appreciate the way that Mrs. Laird updates terms and explains that “healing” is correction of a thought or belief. I struggled so long, and the organization didn’t give me what was necessary!
“We Are the World…” is totally amazing, and helps me make sense of “Science and Health,” in terms of the mid-1800s level of understanding that Mrs. Eddy had to work with. I have found [recordings of] Mrs. Laird’s talks, as well as Betty Albee’s, riveting and full of pow’s – “Wha-a-a-t!” … “Oh my God, I see!” … “Yes!”
