Grateful to be reminded Thank you for “ The value of self-knowledge ” by Barbara Vining in the February 19, 2018, Sentinel. I just completed a month of jury duty and have been thinking about how Jesus’ concession to John’s baptism (or ritualism) was followed immediately in the Bible by Jesus’ wilderness experience and the temptations or suggestions to use spiritual methods for material gain.
Refusal to accept illness [Mark Rendina, “ Cancer healed ,” Sentinel, February 12, 2018] Mark Rendina’s steadfast refusal to accept the belief in illness, even in the face of medical diagnoses, is such a powerful example of “signs following. ” Thank you to Mark for including in his account the Christly reasoning that was vital to overcoming each stage in his healing experience.
It covers the whole ground [Amy Lang, “ A divinely scientific solution to climate change ,” Sentinel, February 5, 2018] Thank you for publishing this article. It covers the whole ground of earth and heaven and man clearly and completely.
For all ages [TeenConnect, Christian Kongolo, “ Beyond skin color ,” JSH-Online. com, January 17, 2018 ] This is an excellent article for people of all ages and also very helpful in teaching Sunday School.
Wonderful article [Mark Swinney, “ A spiritual view of individuality ,” Sentinel, January 15 & 22, 2018] Wonderful, wonderful article explaining the infinite and unlimited nature of man’s spirituality. I so needed it today.
Hope everyone reads this [Margaret Mayer, “ Strive for an enlightened response to news ,” Sentinel, January 8, 2018] I hope that everyone reads this article and takes it to heart. It is easier to let human emotion and personal opinion influence our thinking, but God’s demand is unselfed love.
Foreshadowed Many thanks to Diane Marrapodi for her courage and honesty (“ Healing after sexual abuse ,” Sentinel, January 8, 2018). The #MeToo and similar movements worldwide that expose sexual abuse and harassment were, it seems to me, foreshadowed in Mary Baker Eddy’s essay “Ways that are Vain” in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany —especially beginning on page 211, line 3.
New view of Christmas [Judy Wolff, “ A selfless Christmas ,” Sentinel, December 25, 2017] This article has given me a whole new view of Christmas. I often remember Christmas when I was a child—it was a wondrous family time, full of fun and excitement.
