Individually Sharing Electronic Copies of Content

Thank you for your interest in sharing the blessings of the periodicals. Individual Users may share electronic copies of Content only through the sharing functions provided by the Service or through permitted non-public display on a device. To learn more about the sharing functions for individuals visit our FAQs.

The Service permits Users to share links to certain Content by email––either by copying the URL into an email or using the email button on the webpage displaying the Content. This button does not actually send a copy of the Content, but instead sends a link to the Content so that the email recipient may access the Content by clicking on the emailed link. You do not need permission to use this “email a link” functionality; however, you may not email the Content itself. 

Additionally, the Service permits sharing of links to Content via Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp buttons. Please do not share logos or images from the Content other than via the article sharing functions provided by the Service. Sharing Content via social media is only allowed using the buttons provided by the Service or by posting the public URL or a very brief excerpt of the text Content (similar to a pull quote, please no images). Please do not copy the entire text or audio of Content from the Service, or from a social media​ page, to post elsewhere.

Sharing Entire Issues of Magazines in Print Format

Subscribers may download entire issues of magazines only as the Service’s functionality permits and for the Subscriber’s personal use only. Subscribers may store one copy of each issue on their own computer, and print one copy for their own use. You may share your printed copy with others, but you may not make additional printed copies to share. Special rules apply to Subscribing Organizations with Institutional Subscriptions; please see Section 3 of the Terms.

Sharing of Entire Issues of Magazines in Electronic Format

Users may not share full issues of magazines downloaded from the Service by any electronic method whatsoever, including, without limitation, by email, web posting, file sharing, digital copying, social media, or otherwise.

Organizations and Bloggers/Content Creators Promoting Electronic Copies of Content

Herald-Online appreciates the growing digital community and wants to be part of the conversation. As the digital format of The Christian Science Journal, Christian Science Sentinel, and The Herald of Christian Science, Herald-Online welcomes and supports the online world in the exploration of Christian Science. However, we ask that you briefly quote or link to articles on Herald-Online, and refrain from reproducing them in their entirety on your site, blog, or platform ("your site").

Linking to the Herald-Online/JSH-Online Homepage

Herald-Online invites you to place a link to our homepage on your site. Please see for more information on linking to us, as well as some web-enabled logos. 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 Herald-Online homepage offers a substantial amount of free Content which is updated regularly, and no permission is needed to link to the homepage.  

Linking to specific content

Online-Only Herald Content does not require a subscription to view. If your organization would like to digitally promote individual items of Herald-Online Content, such as an article, poem, testimony, or podcast—thank you! We appreciate your support in highlighting the specific relevance of the periodicals to your community. We invite you to copy the public URL—(the link in the browser address bar for the text Content)—and to post the public URL on your website and/or social media profile, to include it in your organizational emails, or to create a QR code to include in print materials (posters, banners, bookmarks, etc). 

There is no limit to the number of public URLs you may promote in this manner. However, we ask that organizations and bloggers/content creators please promote Content using only the public URLs as described in this section, rather than by: (i) using the URLs revealed by the email and social sharing buttons, which are designed for individual sharing (formerly known as “Deep Links”), or (ii) copying and pasting the text of the Content, although we acknowledge that there are regions where Internet connectivity is poor, and as a result, copying and pasting of Content may be the only option—please contact us if this is the case in your area.

To make the promotion relevant, we recommend you include some additional context to introduce why specific Content is relevant to your community. This could include a brief "pull quote" from the article (e.g., a few words up to a sentence or two), such as you might see in our magazines.

To request permission to promote Content in a manner other than as described here, please contact us at 

De missie van de Heraut

In 1903 stichtte Mary Baker Eddy De Christian Science Heraut, met het doel: “de universele werkzaamheid en beschikbaarheid van Waarheid te verkondigen” (My 353:14). De definitie van ‘heraut’ in een woordenboek: “voorloper – een boodschapper die vooruit is gestuurd om bekend te maken wat er gaat komen”, geeft een speciale betekenis aan de naam Heraut en wijst ons bovendien op onze plicht – de plicht van ieder van ons – om te zorgen dat onze Herauten hun taak vervullen, een taak die onafscheidelijk is van de Christus en werd aangekondigd door Jezus met de woorden: “Ga heen in heel de wereld, predik het Evangelie aan alle schepselen” (Markus 16:15).

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