WHY WE WROTE THIS
Cities throughout history have survived wars and plagues and often come through them stronger. Now some believe the pandemic will yield innovations that will make streets more user-friendly for residents and give neighborhoods a greater voice in planning.

WHY WE WROTE THIS
The coronavirus outbreak has inflicted an emotional toll that can extend to what’s known as moral injury. Many people are seeking the perspective – and the human connections – to address a hope deficit.
Here are some timely articles from Christian Science publications and friends that we hope you'll find helpful and strengthening:
By Everett Kourian
From the December 31, 1938 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel
"Twenty years ago I became interested in Christian Science after attending a Sunday service at The Mother Church. During the following three years much time was spent in investigating and studying this Science. As a result of my study I was healed of bilious attacks, sick headaches, broken arches, and fear of contagion."
From the November 30, 1918 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel
St. Louis (Mo.) Republic
"We are supposed to be a Christian people, supposed to have inherited and to be maintaining that faith in God which inspired the Pilgrim Fathers to brave the dangers of the uncharted ocean and the uncertainties of a country unsettled and occupied with hostile peoples. If we were asked individually whether we have faith in God, whether we believe the Scriptural teaching of His omnipresence and loving care, we would almost unanimously answer, Yes. If we were asked whether we believed anything could overpower that omnipotent omnipresence and nullify that care, we would with equal assurance answer, No. Yet the majority of us are going around in dire apprehension of being overtaken by something we cannot see, the terror of which is largely in its name. We are not manifesting one one-hundredth part of the courage of the boys we have sent overseas to make the world safe for that democracy through which the spiritual ideals of humanity find readiest expression."
"Hey everyone. This is the video version of a song my wife Wendy Remington recorded at home and played as the solo during our church’s online service (the lyrics will be familiar, with an added verse from Psalms 33:5; Wendy wrote the music and plays the piano) – a fitting message during this challenging time."
