“Don’t give up!” — Hear the Sentinel Watch weekly podcast on Tuesday at 2:00 pm (Eastern)



After a serious tumble down a flight of stairs resulting in multiple fractures, abrasions and bruises, this week’s guest learned how important it was not to give up. Once again, she relied on the power of God to heal her and she was not disappointed.
Dear Friends,

This week’s Christian Science Sentinel print edition further discusses spiritual healing in the editorial Our role in healing, explaining that our role is to witness what God is already and always doing.  

The Bible is unequivocal in stating that God alone heals. 

What then is our role, and how can we fulfill it?  

Jesus provides clear insight. In John 18:37 he says, “To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.” Our role, then, is to bear faithful, steadfast witness to what is true—to what God knows. In Christian Science this is known as giving metaphysical treatment. 


There are also articles related to upcoming Mother’s Day–The Mother-Love that heals and A Psalm for Mother’s Day–each sharing Love’s gentle, deep, spiritual care of each one of us.


Join us to hear about this higher spiritual view that helps us move above and beyond material circumstances and relationships to spiritual health and wholeness.
