On the mission of the Christian Science Sentinel

“The Sentinel shows the way to replace a dreary, hopeless outlook on life with the understanding that man is the perfect idea of perfect God, expressing the nature of divine Mind. It reveals man, not joyless and inharmonious, but rich with happiness, love, and health, because he is the child of God.”

Virginia MacFarlane
March 1963
