‘BLACK

IS BEAUTIFUL’

As I viewed the two beautiful

black women on the cover of

the December 13, 2004, Sentinel,

“A journey toward

peace,” I could only think of

how far the Church of Christ,

Scientist, has come.

Growing up as a black

Christian Scientist in Kansas

during the l950’s, I encountered

racism in the church,

such that my grandmother,

who had introduced us to

Christian Science, felt she had

been passed over as First

Reader because of her race.

Now we have a dutiful

black President of The Mother
Church, who is relating to the

black community. A black

Gospel choir singing in The

Mother Church—unbelievable!

(Black music is what I

miss most being in a “white”

church such as ours!)

“It is well!” Black is becoming

beautiful in the Christian

Science Church!
