Women’s History Month

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Celebrating Women’s History Month this month of March, I recall amazing women of today, yesterday, and long ago.

Women from the Bible include Mary, the mother of Jesus, Ruth, the Moabite, Queen Esther, Priscilla, and Elizabeth. For a more complete list, click here.

We read in, 21st Century Science and Health, “The women who stood near Jesus’ cross were able to answer Pilate’s question, “What is truth?”[1] They knew what had inspired their devotion, motivated their faith, and opened the eyes of their understanding. They identified with the Principle that healed the sick, cast out evil, and caused the disciples to say to their Teacher: “Even the demons submit to us in your name.”[2]


[1] John 18:38

[2] Luke 10:17

The questionable big bang
Bible scholars recognize two distinct accounts of creation in Genesis. In the first chapter of Genesis through chapter 2:3, God renders the common noun, Elohim. As for the second account, the beginning of human history, God renders Yahweh in the Hebrew. For right reasoning, the two accounts ca

Investigating positive thinking
Positive thinking has its benefits, but it also holds a strong suggestion that people can be responsible for their fortunes, or misfortunes. If the status-quo of positive thinking people isn’t challenged, broader social problems can be marginalized and blaming fingers can point where they shouldn
