We’re excited to announce an all-new audio format for a weekly 30-minute broadcast, available any time on your phone, tablet, laptop or other device! This new program, Sentinel Watch, will feature a topic of current interest each week.  The week’s new program begins airing on Fridays at 9:30 a.m. Pacific time.

This week’s topic is A knowledge of God defeats depression — you’re invited to tune in while you’re on your way to work, out running errands, or just enjoying a quiet time at home.

At any age depression seems unfair for anyone struggling with it, but somehow it seems even more unjust when it tries to swallow up the joy of youth. Our contributors faced depression that started in their teens, and both won complete freedom after journeys of spiritual discovery. For one that meant discovering the practicality of the ideas of healing she had been learning about in a Christian Science Sunday School. The other discovered, to her great joy, that the God she had hoped was out there actually did exist.

Above all, both of them discovered a God that loved them, cared for them, and was able to bring permanent healing from depression. Hear their experiences on the next edition of Sentinel Watch, a weekly production of the Christian Science Sentinel.


The host of the new program is Tony Lobl, who has been writing and broadcasting on Christian Science for three decades. Beside written and recorded pieces regularly appearing in Christian Science publications he has also had pieces published by national and global news outlets and has been interviewed by radio stations and podcast producers on three continents. Tony found Christian Science in his early twenties and became a Christian Science practitioner in 2004. He and his wife Jenny live in London.
