The Sentinel is a great force in tearing down walls of intolerance and hate between different countries, religions, and lifestyles. By running articles from all corners of the globe, by people of differing faiths, ages, and walks of life, you're doing a great service to all mankind.

Sometimes I find myself in a group of people, often around campfires, where bashing Christianity is the order of the day. Mary Baker Eddy may have been thinking about divisiveness within the Christian church when she made the statement you quoted in the April 9 issue on humility, "To my sense the Sermon on the Mount, read each Sunday without comment and obeyed throughout the week, would be enough for Christian practice" (Message to The Mother Church for 1901, p. 11). Rather than argue with anyone about Christianity, I just like to point out how simple it is, by taking them to Jesus' words from Matthew 22: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind"; and "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."
