spiritual steps out of loneliness

Loneliness has been called a disease of our times. In her book My Life for the Poor, Mother Teresa said, "I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody to no one." Most of us have experienced loneliness in one way or another in our lives, and getting out of that place of desolation can seem daunting.

The Sentinel asked DAVID DEGLER, a Christian Science practitioner, teacher, and contributing editor from Nashville, Tennessee, to share some spiritual insights on this topic. Maike Byrd, children's and staff editor, interviewed him.
