The last blog I wrote was in May titled “EMBRACED BY LOVE.” I thought that would be a wonderful way to conclude my blogging.
Yet today it was kindly pointed out that there is a somewhat glaring error in the Wide Horizon Herald (summer 2022 issue) – one that I surprisingly missed as editor, as I believe it’s the first such strike in nearly 20 years of doing this work. My bad.
If it were a minor typo or word choice error such as there, their, or they’re, or if the next newsletter weren’t months away from publication, I’d not be writing this blog.
But, regrettably with humble apologies, on page 8 of this Wide Horizon Herald (see 10. Idiom), the correction is in regard to a very familiar passage – the “Scientific Statement of Being” – from page 468 in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
The correct statement reads as follows:
“There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual.”
To conclude, considering the article “Inspiration from Chickens,” it appears one or more of those idioms or “everyday sayings that refer to feathered friends” aka chickens, seems to have pecked this editor’s ankle. It must have been a rascally rooster!
