To Our Readers

INTEREST IN THE mind-body connection has come a great distance over the last twenty years. What was once considered folklore by much of the medical profession is now seen as a legitimate factor in matters of physical health. Over time, the kinds of questions being asked by researchers and other thinkers have shifted from "Is there is a connection between mind and body?" to "How significant is the connection between a person's thinking and his or her health?"

Our Cover Story sheds more light on the subject. Contributing editor Jan Keeler looks at the relation between purity and health, and draws on the experience of a woman who had been suffering from a serious infection. Antibiotics and minor surgery didn't help the woman's condition, but prayer and an understanding of her pure relation to God did. The infection disappeared in a very short time.

Other significant indicators of a mind-body connection in this week's Sentinel include a retiree who tells of his journey from doubt, depression, and physical disorders to spiritual growth and complete healing. And, as usual, we're pleased to offer several first-hand testimonies of healing from people who have proved for themselves that purely spiritual thoughts—thoughts from God—produce healthy lives.
