Thankful for all the Good Received

I have been interested in Christian Science since last October. Recently I went to my practitioner and told her that I was going to my former minister in the Episcopal Church to obtain my letter to the Science Church. I am thankful for the good received in the Episcopal Church. I was cordially received, and encouraged to talk of Science, which I did to the best of my understanding. I found in my minister a kind listener. He asked if I were assured of my course; if all the bitterness, malice, and hatred had left my heart. I replied that I was in earnest, that Christian Science had reached me. He uttered a few words of regret at my leaving, and hoped that I would often return for communion service. He assured me that the door of the Episcopal Church would be always open to me. I thanked him for the invitation and for the letter. After taking my departure the thought came that going back to the communion of bread and wine would be to me a going back to the offering up of material sacrifice to a God who is Spirit. Christian Science has freed me from all colds for the past winter. I am thankful to God, to Mrs. Eddy, and my practitioner for all the good I have received.
