To Our Readers

Some issues aren't easy to write or speak about for a public audience. But when the need is so great, the results are surely worth the effort. One of these hard issues is domestic violence. As you're reading this magazine today, there are homes and families in almost every community that are threatened by violence from within. You may know one of these families.

Yet in some of those same homes, something else is quietly taking place. The families are praying together. Even though they have suffered violence, they are turning to God. The redeeming influence of His love is being felt. And, as in this week's Cover Story, some are finding real healing. Such spiritual healing is profound, powerful, life-changing. It's the direct evidence of God's grace; it's the result of understanding and applying the laws of God in one's experience.

Joyce and Paul Marin spoke with the Sentinel about their personal journey of healing. They tell of their own prayer and of the central role that the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy played in this healing. It was Science and Health that opened the laws of God to them, that made those spiritual laws understandable and practical. Paul Marin speaks of the newfound gentleness, the kindness, the genuine love, that his relationship with God revealed to him. Joyce Marin tells of the forgiveness, the spiritual growth, and the deeper understanding of man's true, spiritual identity that she gained through her prayer.
