Kudos to you for the November 4 issue on the economy! If I were a newcomer to Christian Science, that issue would truly help me to learn what Christian Science is, and how it heals.

Each and every article and testimony was written with love and keen spiritual insight, in the language of Christian Science, but with attention to the needs of a newcomer wanting to learn about Christian Science and/or to know how to pray about supply, security, or health.

This issue expressed the kind of "watching" that I believe Mary Baker Eddy had in mind when she named this magazine Sentinel—"to hold guard over Truth, Life, and Love," and attached to it the words of Jesus, "What I say unto you, I say unto all—WATCH." This kind of watching is not observing the world to note all the good, spiritual things that are happening. The "Items of Interest" section is an excellent and appropriate place for the "observation" kind of watching. The kind of watching that I believe Mrs. Eddy had in mind for the Sentinel is to identify trends of thought in our world today that need our healing prayer, and to give us ideas on how to pray effectively.

Enjoy 1 free Sentinel article or audio program each month, including content from 1898 to today.
