CSPS appreciates the growing web and blogging community and wants to be part of the conversation. However, as a paid subscription website, we ask that you link to articles on JSH-Online Herald, rather than reproduce them on your site or blog ("your site").

We invite you to place a link to our homepage on your site. Please see for more information on linking to us, as well as a web-enabled logo. Our homepage includes links to each of our magazines, and other online-only Content, so there is no need to link directly to any individual magazine. The JSH-Online Herald home page offers a substantial amount of freely accessible content which is updated regularly, and no permission is needed to link to it.

A "deep link" is a direct link to a specific article or other Content on JSH-Online Herald, as opposed to a link to our homepage. A link to the Service’s homepage is not considered to be a deep link. If you are a Subscriber and wish to post a deep link on your site, please use the Service’s sharing function to send an email to yourself. The email will include a deep link to the Content that you can post on your site, that will enable non-subscribers to access the Content on the Service. You may reproduce the first paragraph of an article, or a brief description of other Content, as an introduction to the deep link. (Technical Note: Sharing the URL of specific Content on the Service will not enable a non-subscribing visitor to access the Content, it will only lead to a log-in page.) The Service’s functionality may not allow some Content to be shared, and such Content should not be shared via other methods.

Subscribers may maintain as many as five deep links to Content on the Service without prior written permission. To request permission to post more than five deep links, please contact us at Institutions should have their own subscriptions to post deep links on their websites.

The Mission of the Herald

In 1903, Mary Baker Eddy established The Herald of Christian Science. Its purpose: "to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth." The definition of "herald" as given in a dictionary, "forerunner—a messenger sent before to give notice of the approach of what is to follow," gives a special significance to the name Herald and moreover points to our obligation, the obligation of each one of us, to see that our Heralds fulfill their trust, a trust inseparable from the Christ and first announced by Jesus (Mark 16:15), "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

Mary Sands Lee, Christian Science Sentinel, July 7, 1956
