Why we chose this topic

Have you ever found yourself so familiar with powerful words that they no longer seem meaningful? Our feature article’s author humbly admits that happened to her. A key spiritual statement that she knew very well had become mere words on paper, which was a real obstacle to her Christian Science practice. But the power of God’s Word can never be lost. As our feature article and archive accompaniments illustrate, we have a right to discern God’s Word anew when we read the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and to be healed and become healers.

On the mission of the Christian Science Sentinel

“The Sentinel still reminds us of the need to watch. And it still alerts us to the primary thing: proving in our own lives the power of Christ.”
