Helpful in praying daily I look forward each week to receiving my new Sentinel. The articles are always inspiring, as was the article in the October 13, 2014, issue titled “ To be an effective healer ” by Michelle Nanouche.

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. Always knowing that Love is the controlling factor and not any human sense is so freeing.

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.

Strengthening and freeing [“ To be an effective healer ,” Michelle Nanouche, October 13, 2014, Sentinel ] A thank you to Michelle Nanouche for this inspiring, encouraging, and helpful article. How strengthening and freeing to realize that the privilege of prayer in Christian Science practice “is simply to witness to the Christ-idea of true manhood and womanhood—to witness to the Christ-message of God’s perpetual care for His creation, the divine message of unending good that restores harmony where discord seemed to be.

Thank you [“ The significance of joy ,” Ruth Geyer, October 6, 2014, Sentinel ] As always, God speaks to us in a language we can understand. He also speaks to us exactly when we need to hear Him.

Letters

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.

Letters

Beautiful healing [“ Teeth straightened through prayer ,” Adrienne McWhorter, September 15, 2014, Sentinel ] Beautiful healing! Any time I pray about teeth, I include the knowledge that we include only spiritual ideas, which are “rooted and grounded in love” ( Ephesians 3:17 ). Thank you for sharing this lovely healing.

Letters

Especially helpful I just want to say thank you for the testimony submitted by Susie Jostyn [“ True growth is only good ,” September 15, 2014, Sentinel ] about her healing of a growth under her eye. This statement was especially helpful: “There never had been and never would be a false impression of me.

Letters

Thoughtful and helpful Please express my deep gratitude to the editors for their weekly column, which is always thoughtful and helpful. I would like to mention in particular the editorial in the August 4, 2014, issue, “ The result of God’s being ,” which I found deeply inspired and inspiring.

Helpful article [ “Can a ‘miracle’ really occur?” Nate Frederick, August 18, 2014, Sentinel ] What a helpful article. I love the analogy of the light beam shining outward.
