from the Editors

At the end of every professional baseball season in the United States, each league selects a "comeback player of the year." This player is one who is judged to be a shining example of what it means to overcome adversity and to play as well as, or even better than, he had in the past.

Often, of course, people face much more serious challenges. One year ago this week, New York's World Trade Center was bombed. Last spring and summer there were the devastating floods in the Midwest. And just a month ago, there were widespread bush fires in Australia and a major earthquake hit southern California. In the ensuing weeks and months, the people in those areas have made tremendous progress toward recovery. And there is a continuing call for renewal.

This issue of the Sentinel is meant to help people pray about how to "come back" from affliction and adversity. You'll find articles relating to veterans of war, abusive family situations, the environment, and the healing of the effects of an accident, among other subjects. Truly, recovery and renewal are possible, and they are best realized through radical trust in God.
