Black And White? Or Brothers?The Christian Science Sentinel recently re-posted an article written in 2018 titled, Black and white? Or brothers? It regards the topic of race between two college roommates:

It was my first week in college in the United States, and I didn’t understand what was going on with my roommate. At first I’d been friendly, but he wasn’t very responsive. So I backed off—thinking he needed his space. However, I soon noticed that, while he didn’t seem to want to talk to me, outside of our room he was friendly with others.

I had never been in a situation like this before—of being around someone, having to live with someone, who was pretending I didn’t exist. The atmosphere in our room was tense, and in our limited interactions he was always unfriendly and impolite…

FearThe Christian Science Sentinel recently re-posted an article written by John Detch in 2009 titled, God’s Universe, No Fear There! It regards the topic of fear – a topic that has become more relevant these days:

Many of us face times when fear tries to take over. But I’ve found that no matter how serious the circumstance, God, our Father and Mother, is always available. No matter how dire a situation may seem, God’s love never fluctuates, and our love for Him and our fellow men and women actually acts as a powerful force, shielding us from harm…

Christian Science Sentinel – Christ: The door to healing and for healers

Christ The Door To Healing And For HealersConnie Coddington and Barbara Vining share a Sentinel Watch titled, Christ: The door to healing and for healers:

On this edition of Sentinel Watch, our guests discuss the light Jesus threw on the nature of his healing practice when he said, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved” (John 10:9). They show how we can follow Christ Jesus’ teachings and example by letting our spiritual identity be expressed through our humanity, and how healing happens in Christian Science—in which God, working in human consciousness, changes our thought from accepting material limitation to perceiving God’s infinite goodness and power.

Sharing Christian Science UnselfishlyBeth Campbell shared an article on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Sharing Christian Science Unselfishly. The article touches upon a personal story:

One Saturday morning not too long after I’d been a guest at an inspiring Christian Science association meeting on the topic of unselfishness, I woke up with the idea to volunteer at my local Christian Science Reading Room. I wasn’t scheduled to work there on that day, but called up the person who was and offered to take over her shift. Since she’d already worked some that week, she was delighted.  

I had a productive time at the Reading Room, and afterward I stopped at a grocery store. In front of the store, there was a young couple with cardboard signs asking for money. Admittedly, I felt a bit annoyed. Without really looking at the couple, I went into the store and chatted with one of the store clerks about seeing more and more people asking for money right near the doorways of stores. What she said was in line with the desire I’d had that morning to practice unselfishness. She told me I shouldn’t feel obligated to give them money, but maybe I should just acknowledge them. I knew that was a good idea and one I normally try to practice…

Follow That StarMyrra Johnson shared an article on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Follow that star. The article touches upon the holiday season:

I am always amazed when I look up at the stars at night. The wonder of God’s handiwork makes me stand in awe.

I can well imagine how the wise men many, many years ago must have felt when looking up at a particularly bright star that may have seemed rather overwhelming to them. Perhaps its light penetrated near and far, beyond what they had ever experienced before. But they knew that this was an extraordinary event. Something wonderful was taking place, and they followed the star to the place where it was resting—above the humble manger where a small babe had been born. That babe was Christ Jesus, who would unfold Truth to a world waiting to be lifted out of its materialistic beliefs. The star brilliantly epitomized this hope, and they looked up with wonder and expectation…

Tackling Global Issues, With PrayerEmily Faulkner shared an article on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Tackling global issues –  with prayer. The article discusses the power of prayer:

Emily Faulkner, a global studies major, lives at a unique intersection of thought. On the one hand, her major has exposed her to an in-depth analysis of some of the most pressing issues facing our planet. On the other, her study and practice of Christian Science have taught her that the most effective problem-solving doesn’t begin with a deep dive into the problem but with a solid understanding of God and God’s goodness—which in turn can bring healing. The Sentinel’s Jenny Sawyer sat down with Emily to talk about how it’s possible to stay informed about global issues and still pray about them effectively…

Kathleen Mitchener shared an article this week on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Dispelling destructive forces. The article focuses on  prayer during extreme weather:

Each year, hurricane season is seen as running from June through November, with September generally anticipated as the most destructive month. Yet, prayer based on an understanding of the all-power of God can help us find a sense of calm in any situation—and experience it.

Growing up and living in an area of high tornado activity in the Midwestern United States, as well as serving in hurricane territory in the Peace Corps, I have had opportunities over the past several years to see firsthand the power of God to bring calm and safety despite the threat of storms…

Rowanne Karapogosian shared an article this week on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Singer healed of lost voice. The article focuses on  God’s Love:

I have been a student of Christian Science my whole life, and I have had countless healings through my understanding of Christian Science and through the prayers of Christian Science practitioners.

I received one early proof of God’s love for His children when I was in tenth grade. I was a member of my high school’s madrigal singers choir, and we received an invitation for two of our singers to audition for a large, semiprofessional performance group. Three of us raised our hands: a senior, a junior, and a sophomore—me. Our teacher said that the two oldest students could audition and that only if the director had time to take a third, could I audition.

Aging - SentinelThe most recent article published on the Editorial page of the Christian Science Sentinel’s website is titled, Aging, really? No! This piece acknowledges and embraces ways in which we can gracefully age through our years. It describes this concept by conveying the following:

Who doesn’t get a lift from seeing individuals of “advancing years” taking on and enjoying vigorous and even challenging physical activities, or pursuing an education they missed out on in their youth, or taking on and thriving in a new and demanding career, or expressing grace and genuine love while engaging in volunteer activities that provide needed services for others? And we are especially heartened when we see someone courageously, patiently, and persistently making progress in defeating severe age-related challenges.   What gives us a lift isn’t that these individuals are proud of what they can do at their age, or that they are struggling to keep young, or that, like cheese, they get better with aging.

Christian Science Sentinel – Refuse to hate, yield to Love

If you missed it, Kim Crooks Korinek wrote an article posted on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Refuse to Hate – Yield to Love. The article focuses on the power of Love:

Whether it’s extremist hate groups or the anger of a neighbor, hatred can seem like an insurmountable wall. However, even in the midst of its emotional push and pull, we are not powerless. We can refuse to meet hate with hate. However threatening hatred may appear to be, we can yield to God’s love. God is Love, and Love is always operating, replacing anything unlike Love. 

The omnipotence of Love’s dynamic presence and its inevitable influence and impact are best illustrated with the immediacy of light replacing shadow. God, Love, operates through law—a moral and spiritual force.  Christian Science refers to this moral and spiritual force as the law of God, good, the law of Life, Truth, and Love. This law of God governs and guides all the varied expressions of God.  

So what does this have to do with standing up to hate? By yielding to the omnipotence of Love, we can understand that hate is powerless. Mary Baker Eddy explains this in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, referring to Truth as another synonym for God: “Because Truth is omnipotent in goodness, error, Truth’s opposite, has no might. Evil is but the counterpoise of nothingness” (pp. 367–368). Knowing this, even in a degree, reveals how fragile and fraudulent hatred is. And because Love is omnipotent, the law of Love is equally so, and is instant and active under any circumstance.
