When I saw the heading on the cover of the August 20 issue, "Healing grief," I thought it didn't apply to me, as I have no loss of loved ones. But as is my usual practice, I turned to "From the editors" and found, "Defeat conspiracy and mistrust in Iraq—and everywhere." I was feeling defeatist about Iraq, the seemingly implacable hatred between Sunni and Shia, and about our wish for a peaceful solution. You have spurred me on to greater prayer to know more of the love of Love for all mankind.

I found a treasure trove of wonderful articles in this issue. I had heard Sandy Sandberg on Sentinel Radio, and it was good to find in print his healing of grief. Tami Moulton's article, "A different kind of answer," contained a thought about "gathering up the fragments . . . that nothing be lost" (John 6:12). It was so beautifully expressed. And the chat with Tom Black from spirituality.com gives hope and encouragement to those struggling with problems and making some headway, but not quite ready for "the transformation of thought" that brings healing.
