TO OUR READERS—A SPECIAL NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

As the Sentinel staff was putting together this week's issue, our final issue of 1997, we paused to take stock. First, it was apparent that the Sentinel had covered a lot of territory this year, watching the world from a spiritual standpoint and considering healing solutions for a wide range of individual and societal problems. In our focus sections, we've looked at topics such as cyberspace, cloning, the gaps between young and old, mental health, morality, finding direction in life, and making a difference in community affairs. The Sentinel's focus topics also spoke directly to challenges of cynicism, rage, and religious intolerance. Other weeks provided significant perspectives on spirituality, heaven, the healing through prayer of disease, grief, and fear, and showed how God's love makes a real, substantial difference in human lives.

This week's issue is no exception. It offers a fresh way of considering the role of the media in contemporary life. Veterans from the field of journalism and spiritual thinkers are actually bold enough to proclaim that there is not only hope for the media but that the media themselves can be a vehicle for building hope and creating positive expectations in society.
