The Christian Science Sentinel

STUDENTS of Christian Science cannot be too grateful for the fidelity with which the periodical known as the fidelity with which the periodical known as the Christian Science Sentinel holds to the derivation of its title, as well as to the wider scope of its more obvious meaning,—one who watches and guards. It watches, with righteous alertness, all true achievement and noble aspiration; it gives Christianly halt to that which is counterfeit; it passes, with brotherly salute, all those forward-marching thoughts which are rousing humanity from its material dream to hear and understand the "All's well" of spiritual reality. It does, indeed, guard unswervingly "the structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle,"—the true Church, as Mrs. Eddy conceived it to be, and as she defines it, in part, on page 583 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,"—to the end that Christian Science, which she discovered and founded, may be kept in its pristine purity and vitality.

The brevity and straightforwardness of the Sentinel's articles, based upon everyday demonstration in all the practical affairs of life, clearly testify to the divine Principle. "The understanding, even in a degree, of the divine All-power," Mrs. Eddy assures us (ibid., p. 454), "destroys fear, and plants the feet in the true path,—the path which leads to the house built with-out hands 'eternal in the heavens.'
