This interview features selected experiences from a Sentinel Watch podcast and has been adapted for print. Here are accounts from Melanie Wahlberg, a Christian Science practitioner from Lake Forest, California, and John Tyler, a Christian Science practitioner and teacher from Washington, DC. In the original podcast, five guests share experiences when they’ve felt the love of God so clearly that it’s changed their days—and their lives—in profound ways. To listen to the full podcast, with all of the guests, please visit sentinel.christianscience.com/feel-and-know-god-s-love.
Rita Polatin: We’re going to talk about a sense of peace and love that can’t be shaken, because as Christ Jesus came to show us, God’s love is present and can be felt in practical ways. Mary Baker Eddy wrote about this. She said, “The life of Christ Jesus, his words and his deeds, demonstrate Love” and “. . . the consciousness of God as Love gives man power with untold furtherance” (Message to The Mother Church for 1902, pp. 8–9). This is a promise for all of us. Our guests today share how they saw this as absolutely true. So sit back and get ready to feel God’s love.
