For several days, a few years ago, I had been unable to open my jaw enough to chew solid food. And I was healed during a Wednesday evening testimony meeting at a branch Church of Christ, Scientist.
I love to contribute to the branch Church of Christ, Scientist, of which I am a member. About a year ago, when I was serving on the board of this church, I went through an experience that led me to ponder the spiritual truth that we are one with God.
This past scholastic year represented an important step in my progress in my graduate program. There were preliminary exams that permitted me to start working on my dissertation project.
When I was pregnant with our second child, we called a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful support. She helped us prepare for the birth by countering material beliefs surrounding pregnancy and childbirth with spiritual facts, which we learned and practiced through a sincere study of the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
Christian Science came into my life when I was desperate to know about our Father-Mother God and my relationship to God. I have experienced countless healings following this wonderful path of Truth.
Several months ago I had a problem with one of my ears. A family member told me that she was not hearing clearly in one ear.
While going down some stairs one evening, I slipped. At the time it didn’t concern me.
To understand the validity of Christian Science is not difficult when I think of the many remarkable experiences I’ve had since taking up its study. I found this Science in my late teens when I was depressed and suicidal.
“Christian Science erases from the minds of invalids their mistaken belief that they live in or because of matter, or that a so-called material organism controls the health or existence of mankind, and induces rest in God, divine Love, as caring for all the conditions requisite for the well-being of man” (Mary Baker Eddy, Rudimental Divine Science, p. 12 ).
Several times in the weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson a few months ago, the term sober appeared, as in, “Let us watch and be sober” ( I Thessalonians 5:6 ), and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, “Be watchful, sober, and vigilant” ( p. 324 ).
