I love the article I love the article “Good purpose for all … even mosquitoes?” by Matt Schmidt ( Sentinel, February 10, 2014). Thank you, Matt.
Good reminder Thanks to Tom Blair for his heartwarming article (“Pets and endless life,” February 3, 2014, Sentine l) about the love between him and his dog. I, too, have known the love of dogs, and it was good to be reminded that their beautiful qualities and individuality are eternal just as ours are.
Insightful article Thanks for the insightful article “ Ending the blame game ” by Jill Gooding in the February 3, 2014, Sentinel. I’m currently reading the entire New Testament, and it reminded me of Jesus’ admonition to never refer to another as disconnected from God.
Dissolving disappointment I appreciate the article titled “No dis -appointment” by Andrew Wilson in the January 13 and 20, 2014, Sentinel. It reminded me of an experience back when our family took a trip through New England and Canada, with plans to witness a total eclipse.
A better approach Thanks so much for this wonderful article (“ The body’s not the boss ,” Fenna Corry, January 6, 2014, Sentinel ). The anecdote about the Christian Science practitioner that started the day by telling his body he had washed it, dressed it, and fed it, so he did not want to hear another word from it today, really resonated with me.
The light went on Many thanks to Curt Wahlberg and the Sentinel for his article “ The ‘miracle of Christmas’ continues ” [December 23, 2013]. The way he phrased the insight relating to the incident with the apparently lifeless bird provided a newly useful window from which to view the many truths in the writings of Mary Baker Eddy as well as the Bible.
Golden Rule requires doing [“ Valuing the Golden Rule in the workplace ,” Sarah Hyatt, December 9, 2013, Sentinel] I love the idea of the Golden Rule requiring “doing” instead of being passive. If the rule were to “not do to others what you wouldn’t want them to do to you” or some variation, then we would be perfectly content to be passive, but it’s not! Christ is calling us to take action! What a wonderfully Christian concept.
True currents Thank you, Sentinel Staff and Edward Sage, for sharing the story of his young son‘s deliverance from a dangerous river current [“ Saved from a dangerous current ,” Sentinel, December 9, 2013]. I loved the idea of the opposite current—the current that accurately and precisely directed both father and son close enough to the river‘s edge, where they were pulled from the water by the man who “just happened to be in the neighborhood.
God’s supply of good Thank you for publishing the brave and insightful article by Joe Smuin, “ Money, freedom, and what really sustains ” (December 9, 2013, Sentinel ). Joe offers a welcome spiritual perspective on macro-economic systems as well as individual finances.
Hit the mark The “ Frustration foiled ” Sentinel (December 2, 2013) really hit the mark. Thanks to Channing Walker for unraveling and reversing the frustration that technology can present.
