A dependable logic
Before the start of my junior year in college, I was making my way back to campus after a visit with family and friends in my home country of South Africa. I’d had an enriching break and was looking forward to starting school within a few days. Because of the length of my journey, which included an eight-hour layover at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, I brought with me plenty to read, including the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and recent Christian Science periodicals.
Sitting in the terminal in Amsterdam, I almost felt as though I was having my own church service–everything I read made me feel close to God. One Sentinel article that stood out to me in particular was “Death did not end my life” by Howard Johnson (July 2, 2001). The author recounted experiences that had allowed him to prove that death is not a foregone conclusion. One account involved a severe case of appendicitis. I was very impressed by the article, and after reading it I got up to find my boarding gate as it was almost time to depart.
