A word about writing

In a conversation a young mother told us how much her third-grader likes the children's section of the Sentinel. "There was a poem a while back—written by another child —and Elliot really loved it. He read it and asked me to read it to him over and over. It was called 'Elise's poem.' He even memorized it, and then one night he said, 'That could be my poem. I could call it "Elliot's poem."' The next thing, he printed it out himself very carefully and put it on the wall by his bed. It was quietly done, a private thing with him. The last line of the poem says, 'I am God's little lamb,' and that's the part Elliot liked best."

Most children, like Elliot, love to hear about other children who attend the Christian Science Sunday School. For them reading a children's article can be like making a new friend. If you have some "friends" whose stories you can share with Elliot and Elise, please think about writing for the Sentinel. We have some guidelines that may be helpful, and we'll be glad to send them along to you.
