A Testimony for the Wednesday Evening Meetings

In my search for Truth I was led to read the Christian Science text-book, and while I did not understand it, I felt the Truth was there if I could only grasp it. An acquaintance had spoken to me of the Wednesday evening meetings, saying they were very interesting, and thought I would like them if I would attend.

One Sunday, after reading considerably in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and wishing I could understand it better, the thought came, that if I should attend the meeting, I might receive the help needed. I decided to do so. I had a little curiosity, as I had never attended a meeting, and did not know what was said or done, but I seemed to feel sure I should receive light in some way. During the reading from the Bible and Science and Health, I began to feel glad that I had come. It seemed very simple and informal, and the atmosphere of the place seemed to calm my thought, making me feel peaceful and composed.

When the testimonies were called for, as one after another spoke of the healing they had experienced, I could only listen in wonder at it all. It seemed very strange and mysterious to me. I knew there was healing in Christian Science, but had never heard a personal experience related before, and it made a deep impression upon me. I shall never forget it. I wondered how it was done, and what it seemed like. I was sorry when the meeting came to a close. I was so fascinated with what I had heard that I could have listened much longer.
