To Our Readers

Whether it's a twelve-year-old child getting his first allowance from Mom and Dad, or a young person just starting out on her first job, or a working couple nearing retirement, or a senior citizen on a fixed income—nearly everyone faces issues of money management and how to make wise investments. This week's Cover Story offers a unique perspective because it approaches the whole subject from a fundamentally spiritual basis.

Yes, it points to the usual basic requirements, such as sound financial analysis, knowledge of economic trends and performance, and professional investment advice. Yet the authors also make clear the vital significance of something deeper—of things like unselfish motives, spiritual purpose, prayer and intuition, seeking God's will and His direction. In "The stock market: a spiritual perspective on investing," Jan and David Keeler draw this conclusion: "God's creation includes enough for all, since supply is rooted in infinite Spirit. . . . Each of God's children lives daily with infinite possibilities, infinite opportunities, and bountiful supply." That may not be the standpoint for the typical investment strategy, but it is the basis for realizing true potential and discovering what is actually satisfying and dependable in life.

Also, in this issue, you'll find an editorial by Mary Trammell, "To be really rich," as well as articles on a variety of subjects that share inspiring life-lessons learned by the writers, and several personal accounts of spiritual healing that continue as a regular feature of the Sentinel.
