Experiencing the new Sentinel

Dear Reader,

The new year will bring a new expression of Mary Baker Eddy’s Sentinel to the world, and we hope you’re curious and eager to discover what you’ll find in its pages. In Scott Preller’s editorial in this issue, you can read more (and watch a video) about why these changes are happening: “to strengthen our experience of keeping the watch that Jesus demanded.” And come January, that experience will feature a fresh and fuller expression of the spiritual watch the Sentinel has always offered its readers.

When designing the new Sentinel experience, we asked, What if a community of like-minded people came together to pray about an issue urgently needing a solution? What if these same people were also alert—and even watching—for opportunities to bring healing to the world? This is the promise the redesigned Sentinel holds for you, your fellow readers and pray-ers, and the world.

We hope you’ll dive into the new print Sentinel, join the Sentinel community at cssentinel.com, and tell us what you think. We’ll be ready to hear from you and continue the conversation.
