Testimonies given at Marshall, Mich

The Daily Chronicle

Perhaps few people realize the character of the Wednesday evening meetings that are held by the Christian Scientists in their hall in the Hughes Block. The service consists in singing hymns, reading selections from the Bible and Christian Science text-book, silent prayer followed by the Lord's Prayer, and interesting personal testimonies of healing and spiritual benefit that had been gained through Christian Science.

Among the first to speak at a recent meeting was a lady who told how the understanding of Christian Science had enabled her to overcome the sense of anger and injustice in herself and others. Another expressed her gratitude for Christian Science. It had not only healed her physically, but brought harmony into her home and been a constant help in bringing up her children. Another told of a case of brain fever having been healed by its power.

A lady, a former resident of Marshall now living in Boston, a Presbyterian clergyman's wife and an ardent Christian Scientist, told of her wonderful healing after years of suffering. Sight was restored after almost total blindness, indigestion of many years' standing was swept away, and two operations rendered unnecessary, all by the same treatment. She also spoke most lovingly of the woman who had by her purity of life and thought been enabled to give again to the world that sense of God which heals sickness as well as sin.
