CHRISTIAN SCIENCE SENTINEL

1898—A Hundred Years of Watching and Holding Guard—1998

Do you have any old photo albums? It's fun to revisit the people and events of years ago. We've been looking at a photo album of sorts lately, one documenting the evolution of this weekly magazine.

There are things about the Sentinel that have changed dramatically year to year, decade to decade. Relevance is vital for a magazine that helps people watch and pray about news and trends. No wonder the Sentinel's founder, Mary Baker Eddy, required "that these periodicals are ably edited and kept abreast of the times" (Manual of The Mother Church, Art. VIII, Sect. 14). There are other elements that haven't changed. On September 1, 1898, the world saw the first issue of this magazine, named by Mary Baker Eddy The Christian Science Weekly. Soon after, she renamed it the Christian Science Sentinel.
