This week's Sentinel Watch podcast 

What is animal magnetism and how can we deal with it?

April 17 - 23

Guest: Moji George

Many people believe God is omnipresent. Christian Science teaches that God is omnipresent good. If that's true, what's with all the bad things in our lives and our world? And is there a spiritual way to deal with the bad - everything from significant obstacles to evil itself? That's what this week's podcast is all about.

For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living? Psalms 56:13

When we wait patiently on God and seek Truth righteously, He directs our path. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 254:13)

For thou hast delivered  Prayer That Heals
