In Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Australia, Canada, Europe, and parts of Asia, shortwave radio broadcasts of The Herald of Christian Science are reaching a large audience. We thought that Sentinel readers might enjoy reading adaptations from some of these radio programs.

The Herald Broadcast

Self-esteem and valuing others

Bea Roegge: We're calling our program today "Self-esteem and the valuing of others." I'm sure we all know of instances where someone did not recognize his or her value and, as a result, did something unworthy. Maybe committed a crime, got caught in addiction, hurt others. We have many more examples, I trust, of people who do have an awareness of their own value, their own capabilities, and are doing much to bless others. We're going to talk about that. But I wonder if you've ever doubted your own worthiness. I have. I think most of us have. Well, we have in the studio today our friend David Driver from Seattle, Washington. And David has traveled over the world as a Christian Science lecturer, has helped many people. David, I wonder, have you ever been challenged by a lack of self-esteem?

David Driver: Yes, indeed, I have. The occasion that comes most prominently to mind is a time when I'd been invited to address what really amounted to a conference. This organization had a one-day conference once a year. And the typical thing was for the whole of that day to be addressed by one person. And so I'd been invited and I'd felt very honored to be invited.
