This week's Sentinel Watch podcast 

To see well, see good

September 25 - October 1

Guest: George Nutwell

Our guest this week, George Nutwell, has learned that that adage, “Every cloud has a silver lining,” is true. But it’s not about looking for the positive in a negative; it’s about using adverse circumstances to discover more about God and the ever-present good God is always giving us.

I didn’t know if I could be healed of depression

When this high school student felt stuck in the darkness of depression, she turned to Christian Science - including other healings of mental health issues, published in the Christian Science magazines - for help. Read on to find out what happened.

Need a good idea?

Yawn. That’s how this author felt when he got the list of topics for an upcoming paper. As the deadline approached and the pressure mounted, he knew prayer was the only thing that could help him overcome this mental gridlock.

What I couldn’t lose

After being blindsided by a breakup, this author initially felt angry, hurt, and confused, and she wondered where God was. But as she prayed, a more tangible feeling of God’s love turned her thoughts in a new direction.
