A reader recently commented on finding a gem among other "merely mundane" articles. Frankly, I'd like to congratulate the Sentinel staff for having the humility and compassion to print articles which meet the searching thought in its various stages of spiritual advancement. Jesus spoke in parables, using worldly examples when that format would best reach particular listeners. Wherever people are on their spiritual journey today, they can now find inspiration in the new, more inclusive Sentinel.

The Sentinel's founder, Mary Baker Eddy, wrote of "a blade of grass" and "a star" as distinct identities maintained by a caring creator (Science and Health, p. 70). Recently I was in a situation where I felt very ordinary or mundane—like a simple blade of grass among a thousand brilliant stars. But I discovered that the qualities I expressed were exactly what was needed to give someone life-saving help. Thank you again for valuing the power of a right idea, no matter how simply expressed!
