The Christian Science Monitor

Since 1908, The Home Forum has been a section of The Christian Science Monitor dedicated to nonfiction and poetry. The object of the Monitor is (in the words of its founder, Mary Baker Eddy) "to injure no man, but to bless all mankind." The Monitor is a balanced news-gathering operation with its own network of reporters; it is not a church organ. The Home Form section attempts to amuse, educate, inspire, delight, engage, comfort, enlighten. It's a conversation with a well-educated and compassionate friend. The section also hosts the Monitor's single, clearly labeled, religious article.
