Happy New Year

What makes a year new?

As the start of a new year prompts us to reflect on the past and look ahead to the future, we may find ourselves thinking with more urgency about things that haven’t been working in our lives—areas where we feel stuck, unproductive, or stagnant. This is a great first step, but will the turning of a calendar page really bring the transformation and progress our hearts yearn for? It can, if we view the new year from a God-centered perspective.

Healthcare from a spiritual perspective

Sentinel Watch

Podcast #1

Can we trust God

with our health?

January 2 - 8

- with Eric Nelson

Between the high cost of health care and a growing provider shortage, many people believe there’s no way to find or maintain good health. But maybe you’d be willing to consider that there is a power beyond any personal effort or medical expertise that is a reliable, empowering, and uplifting means of healing and health. To start off the new year, we’ll be spending the next four weeks talking about health care from a spiritual perspective. This week’s program is about what we can really trust for our health.

Enjoy inspiring ideas from this week's Bible Lesson

He shall receive the blessing  Prayer That Heals


January 2 - 8

He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. Psalms 24:4, 5

"Christian Science demonstrates that none but the pure in heart can see God, as the gospel teaches." Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 337:14-16
