What a blessing the Christian Science periodicals are for the world. I cherish every one. This Sentinel lifted me up, from the editorial, “Loving our enemies, near and far” by Tony Lobl, through to the letters from readers. The editorial turned my thought from self to the world and challenged me to see it through the lens of love. John Biggs’ “It doesn’t depend on you” released any sense of burden in praying about world problems, because God is ever present, governing our every thought. And, oh, may I feel every time I attend church the way Herta Tomkins (“ ‘Your search is over,’ ”) felt when she first walked into a Christian Science church—as though she were hearing Handel’s “Hallelujah” chorus. “The ‘flashlight of Truth’ ” by Elizabeth Crecelius Schwartz focused that light of Truth on conquering fear. The poetry, Kids article, and testimonies continued the uplift, and I am so very grateful.

Thank you so much for this clear article—especially this sentence: “God determines who we are, not our experiences.” So helpful and uplifting!
