Three years ago, when about to unite with the Christian Science...
Three years ago, when about to unite with the Christian Science Society of our town, I was asked by an orthodox friend whether I had really considered the cost and how much I should have to give up to belong to that church. I looked at the lady in amazement, hardly knowing what to make of her remarks, because she was well aware of what Christian Science had done for me. As I stood looking at my friend, I remembered how much good had come to me in the short time that I had known anything of this healing truth, and the thought came to me, I am giving up a great deal for Christian Science. I have given up chronic invalidism for almost perfect health; noxious drugs and druggist bills for literature which is a help to me in everything I do and at much less cost than the other. I have given up an expensive wheel chair and crutches for the delight of walking about as much as I please and without being made ill or uncomfortable by it. I have given up a sense of want for the wonderful knowledge that, because God is our ever-present source of supply, we can never want for any good thing, and that if we "seek first" for His kingdom (the reign of harmony), everything else will be added as we need it. I have also given up tiresome eyeglasses for perfect eyesight; given up an almost ever-present sense of fear of some impending calamity for the sweetest sense of security and peace. Words fail to express the gratitude I feel and the joy it has been to give up all these discordant conditions for the happiness which Christian Science has brought me in being one of our dear Leader's followers in the way she has taught us. This truth casts out error in every form, and brings us peace without measure, and my earnest wish is to be a worthy worker in the Cause for which I have given up so much that burdened me.
Ida Himmelreich, Waukegan, III.
