Healing Hypotheses  



In addition to periodicals referred to above in connection with New Thought or otherwise easily discoverable in writings relating to New Thought [chiefly New Thought of the International New Thought Alliance, Unity and Daily Word of Unity, Science of Mind of the United Church of Religious Science, and Creative Thought of Religious Science International] and to religious healing in general, there are some others that deserve mention because they at least overlap the New Thought field. Among them are:

Gate Way: Journal of the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship, 1229 Hinman Avenue, Evanston, Illinois [now Spiritual Frontiers, Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship International, P.O. Box 7868, Philadelphia, PA 19101]. The journal identifies itself as a reporter of applied psychics and a forum of diverse opinion. It is published ten times a year by the nondenominational Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship, which formulates no doctrine and espouses no opinion. The Fellowship is a nonprofit corporation formed in March, 1956, to encourage study, within the Christian Movement, of psychic phenomena as related to prayer, spiritual healing, and personal survival (immortality). [Its academic affiliate, The Academy of Religion and Psychical Research, P.O. Box 614, Bloomfield, CT 06002, publishes The Journal of Religion and Psychical Research and the Proceedings of its annual conferences.]

monthly by the Fellowship of the Healing Christ, 802 Cherry Street, Chattanooga, Tennessee. As stated in He Is Able, April, 1963, (no volume number, but the first issue was April, 1961), p. 3.

HE IS ABLE is dedicated to the restoration of the Ministry of Healing in the Methodist Church. It is operated on a non-profit basis and its life depends upon contributions. All work done on the magazine is on a volunteer basis. Currently the monthly distribution is 2,500 copies, of which approximately 1,800 are paid subscriptions.

The Fellowship has a missioner who travels from church to church. Among the books listed by the Fellowship Book Store are some New Thought ones.

The Lund Re-View, published by Harold Woodhull Lund, 754 Clinton Avenue, Bridgeport 4, Connecticut. The first issue of this monthly periodical was that of August, 1962. The view presented is that of a Christian Scientist who has left the Christian Science church, but continues to use the term Christian Science, unlike those who late in the nineteenth century were inspired by Christian Science but acceded to Mrs. Eddy's desire to reserve the name for her own expression of such views. This publication is representative of a monistic interpretation of Christian Science that objects to what it considers the dualistic interpretation of official Christian Science. For information on such differences of interpretation see Braden, Christian Science Today, passim.

A Metaphysical and Symbolical Interpretation of the Bible by Mildred Mann. Published by the Society of Pragmatic Mysticism, 101 West 57th Street, New York 19, New York [now c/o Leonebel Connaway, RR # 1, Box 800, Pawlet, VT 05761]. Mrs. Mann [now deceased] is the leader of the Society, which is dedicated to the "Practice of the Presence of God in the Every Day World." The teachings are essentially those of New Thought. They are an
