To our readers,

In whatever city, suburb, or faraway village you pore over these pages, we hope you feel as we do, that the words help to draw us together. We can be miles and even oceans apart, and yet we meet over these pages. We are reminded again and again that we live and work as part of a larger whole—where each one's spiritual experience matters much more than we might have imagined.

In this community we need not know each other personally to help one another greatly with actual comfort and healing. For example, a young man who has traveled to the bedside of a friend in an African hospital with a Sentinel in his hand doesn't know the Sentinel authors per se, but he does know that because they have, to some degree, lived and written the truth of Christian Science, his friend is healed and leaves that hospital. (See the upcoming December 30 Sentinel lead editorial.) It is one of many, many examples that drive home the point that those who live spiritual truth enable others to live it.

As we have mentioned before, our readers are our strongest helpers. It is your sharing that has added many new subscriptions and kept the Sentinel reaching out to a widening readership. The Christmas gift-subscription offer traditionally supplies a surprisingly large part of our circulation. Please think of someone who would be helped by receiving the Sentinel. (The simplest way to start a gift subscription would be to call 1-800-456-4851.)

Enjoy 1 free Sentinel article or audio program each month, including content from 1898 to today.
