Christian Science Healing

Dayton (O.) Herald

THE Christian Science Church is one of works. Wherever found it stands as a living monument to the power of the Gospel to heal the sick and reform the sinner to-day. Week after month this work goes on, as witnessed by testimonies given at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Dayton, O. Among those recently given were the following.

A traveling man from Kansas City spoke of the wonderful growth of Christian Science in that city; he stated that he traveled over a large section of the country and was often in the smaller towns where there were but few Scientists. It is a source of great encouragement to him, he said, to see the zeal and earnestness manifested by the small societies. He then told of the healing of his wife. She had been under the care of eighteen physicians and had two operations performed, and only as a last resort did she try Christian Science. In sixty days from the time she took her first treatment she was well. That was seven years ago. There is something more, he said, than the physical healing; it is the spiritual illumination of the Scriptures that Christian Science gives.

The housekeeper at one of our large hotels said that she meets a great many persons interested in Christian Science. She related the following incident. The night previous an elderly man and wife arrived at the hotel. They came to see their son, who was an actor in the drama to be played that evening at the Victoria. He had been absent from home for seventeen years. She was somewhat interested in Christian Science, but at first did not think that she could come, yet she very much desired to see her boy. After arriving at the hotel, she became very sick, but would not permit her husband to go for a physician, endeavoring to follow out her highest thought of right according to her knowledge of the Science. After some conversation with her, the housekeeper found that she was interested in Christian Science, and the lady was much delighted to find that she had found a friend in Christian Science just at a time when she so much needed assistance, and through the help given, the suffering was soon overcome.
