Dear Sentinel

From children and teenagers

Dear Sentinel,

A few weeks ago, I was at my friend's house, and I felt I had a headache. My dad picked me up, and we talked about what I should do. I decided I wanted to call a Christian Science practitioner. She gave me a Bible verse that Mary Baker Eddy talks about in Retrospection and Introspection (see 93:17). It reads, "In him we live, and move, and have our being ..." (Acts 17:28). This meant, to me, I could never be out of God's care. I exist as a pure idea of God, and I have "not a single element of error."*

After I got off the phone with the practitioner, I thought about all the spiritual qualities that I express. Instantly, the headache was gone, and it stayed gone.
