Why we chose this topic

For many citizens around the world, the perception is that law enforcement is not always just, and that people can too often be incarcerated without having committed a crime. The desire to offer a basis for more reliable justice is the motive behind sharing this week’s featured Sentinel article. If we fear injustice for loved ones or others—in whatever part of the world—can we, too, commit our hearts and minds to persisting in prayer for the justice all deserve? Can we believe that a higher truth is present with anyone wrongly incarcerated? Whatever concerns we have, we can all play a part in facing down the fear. And knowing that God’s divine presence is right there with everyone is a powerful place to start.

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.”
