The following e-mail from George Glover came in response to our letting him know that his interview would be coming out in this week's Sentinel. We thought you would enjoy hearing this update on the Glover family's life in China.

Holly, Georgie, and I are doing very well in Shanghai. We love the city and people. It's amazing how much this country is thriving. We have to remind ourselves from time to time that this is still a communist country. In fact, we are reminded every Sunday when we attend church. Religion is prohibited in China. Fortunately, with China's foreign population growing rapidly, the Chinese government allows foreigners to practice their religion in "authorized" churches throughout the city. The church we attend is a nondenominational church and includes people from all over the world. It is a great spiritual environment for Holly and me. Every time I attend, I think about Mary Baker Eddy and all the people who have worked so hard for Christian Science.

In addition, I have recently joined a men's spiritual group. We are reading a book by John Eldredge called Waking the Dead. It's a book about opening your heart and really seeing the world through your heart as God meant for us to do. It's a fairly nontraditional view of God and religion, and I find myself constantly referring back to how Mary Baker Eddy faced challenges in her interpretations of God and religion.
