After attending many of the beautiful Christian Science services in London and on the continent, likewise the Wednesday evening testimony meetings, from all of which I have derived much help and understanding, I feel it a privilege to send my own experience. It is now some five years since a great desire came over me to attend a Christian Science service. I may say that from my early childhood I had been seeking for the truth, never being satisfied with my religious belief and experience. I had studied the various "isms" for years, but gained little help therefrom.

On entering the Christian Science church, I was to mortal sense in a very bad state of health, and although I understood nothing of the teaching, I was much impressed with the simplicity of the service, and the earnest, happy-looking faces of the congregation. I had not gone more than a hundred yards away from the church before a great bodily change came over me, and suddenly I felt perfectly well. This wonderful healing caused me to procure a copy of the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and on reading its pages I found what I had been seeking for years,—an understanding of man's relation to God. It also made clear many things in my own religion. The questions that had always puzzled me were answered.

I indeed found Science and Health to be the key to the Scriptures for which I had long sought. It explained the Bible to me spiritually, and answered the questions which had puzzled me even as a child. To say that I am grateful to God for this wonderful truth, and thankful to the one who has given it to the world, is to put it poorly. My great hope is that I may so progress in its understanding as to help others, and thus sow the good seed wherever I go.
