from the Editors

Earlier this year, there was a newspaper column with the headline "The only thing we have to fear is ... television?" (The Boston Globe, May 6, 1993). Considering what so often appears on television screens, the writer noted: "This daily onslaught of violent images is creating fear beyond a reasonable level."

Not just television but all the media can make us forget there is an antidote to fear. An antidote nullifies or neutralizes. What is this antidote? How do we employ it? We think you'll find some helpful answers in the following articles.

The author of the first article in this week's Sentinel describes how, through prayer, she was freed from alcohol abuse and an eating disorder. She, too, faced "a daily onslaught" of negative images, but the outcome of her prayer shows how the mental environment can be controlled by God and result in blessings for each of us.
