New column 

We’re starting a new Sentinel column called “Turning points in spiritual growth.” In this column, readers can share experiences that have particularly made them grow in their practice of Christian Science—times in which the truth became clearer and the pathway ahead felt more certain. For submission information visit jsh.christianscience.com/submit. Please mention the name of the column in “Author comments” on the submission form.

Roger Gordon’s article titled “Reading and studying: a spiritual adventure” in the June 8, 2015, Sentinel, directly answered a distraction I was struggling with at that very moment. I had been reading and pondering that week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson with several insights and inspiration, in spite of my thought being tempted by a desire to watch various TV series on my tablet. I was grateful for Roger Gordon’s article, which alerted me to be awake to the distractions of the digital age and to affirm that we cannot be kept “from doing the reading and studying that would help us progress spiritually, and from finding healing as a result.”
