Mark Twain hailed her “the most interesting and extraordinary woman that ever lived”. Wow! They both used the same copyright lawyer in Boston. By WW2 Mary Baker Eddy’s organization was an omnipotent political force.  WW2 soldiers who were Catholic “boys” were allowed access to Catholic priests, Jewish boys got to have rabbis, and so Christian Science boys brought in C.S. ministry. The C.S. church ranked next to the Red Cross for goods supply to war zones. Ministry to soldiers landed C.S. practitioners and their natural medicine literature to war zones and across enemy lines. Channels for the Divine, the soldiers themselves healed physical wounds and mind-body misery using only energy medicine. Accounts record the wounded healed, the dead raised.

The very inventions: long-range bombers, rockets, finally the atomic bomb which projected Fear of Extinction through the human consciousness shrank the physical dimensions of the globe to those of a neighborhood. “Mortal mind calls for what ONLY immortal mind can supply, Divine Love. ~Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910), founder of Christian Science.

1929 Ford Model A Car, My DREAM Car!

Santa Barbara is old car heaven. Beautifully restored vehicles cruise our streets daily. Henry Ford was into healthy lifestyle. Ford built health into his engines. No surprise to see the word HEALTH stamped on the Model A engine. Ford didn’t smoke or drink. Ford design was about simplicity. He was appalled when folks got greedy wanting more than one car, putting in two car garages and such. Henry Ford was opposed to lifestyle excess, believed in truth, health, and ideas like sustainability. Ford is my kind of man, my kind of car.
