About a year ago I felt impelled to give both of my teenage children their own subscription to the Sentinel. At first when this thought came, I was tempted to dismiss it, thinking: "They can always read my copy of the Sentinel. Why should I spend the extra money?" But it just felt like a right idea that they should have their own copies. I subscribed, not really knowing if the magazines would ever be read or not.

Two summers ago, my son was a counselor at Boy Scout camp. He came home only on Saturday nights. Each week he took his own copy of the Sentinel to camp with him. He used to leave it on his bunk bed. He found other Scouts asking if they could read it. This led to discussions about God and about Christian Science. He found many opportunities to use the ideas he read about in the Sentinel during the week, while he instructed younger Scouts in swimming, boating, and diving.
