Similar situation [“ Faithful defense and the liberty it brings ,” Don Houge, November 3, 2014, Sentinel ] I have encountered a situation somewhat similar in interpersonal issues, and I now have a clearer idea of both parties’ innocence and how to “let go” and “let God” govern each right idea.

The controlling factor [“ Divine Love’s parental guidance ,” October 20, 2014, Sentinel ] Although I do not have a young child with what seem to be disciplinary problems, this article also helps one pray about older children having different problems.

Helped me realize [“ Paul’s recipe for joy ,” Sara Fletcher, October 13, 2014, Sentinel ] What a wonderful article—thank you! It has helped me realize how a transformation of all people with mistaken purposes can occur.   I used to think that for murderers and despots and the like, once they realized what they had done and how horribly they had hurt their fellow man, how could they overcome the guilt? But now I know!  Like Paul, they are saved, radically transformed, reborn by the Christ, and they find their life in God, good.

A timely article [“ Subduing self-righteousness ,” Marianne Scott, September 22, 2014, Sentinel ] Wow! What a timely article, considering the political issues of the day. I love to think how subduing self-righteousness, one thought at a time, will ultimately result in universal peace.
