Many comforting ideas Marilyn Baum’s article, “ The unfolding comfort, care, and direction of Love ,” in the February 2, 2015, Sentinel encouraged me to magnify some of the comfort and guidance that Christian Science has given me while passing through a similar experience of starting a new life after a long, happy marriage.
