When you write for the Christian Science Sentinel, your contributions play a vital role in fulfilling its mission. And that mission is so important to humanity! The comments of Mary Baker Eddy, who established the Sentinel, show how distinct its mission is. (See "Something in a Name" in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 353.) And the motto she assigned to this magazine is also quite specific.
The possibilities of guidance for the writer packed into the Sentinel's mission statement and motto are rich! A writer can ask, for instance, "How does what I've written help the reader follow Christ Jesus' command 'Watch'?" "How does my article illustrate what it is 'to hold guard over Truth, Life, and Love,' as Mrs. Eddy says the Sentinel is intended to do?" "How does this article embody the stirring spirit of a prophet and the tenderness of the shepherd standing watch over the flocks?" And "What can I do to bring out the joy of those who watch for the bridegroom as well as the vigilance of the householder who knows what hour the thief will come?"
There is nothing lightweight about a Sentinel message, though it will naturally embrace all readers with clear, readily accessible language. A Sentinel article certainly seeks to help the reader to distinguish between the false and the true and to see man's unshaken relationship to divine Truth. And considering the unique mission of this magazine while you write, far from limiting the subject or approach, should lift you to see more clearly the unlimited possibilities.
