At the time of my first healing in Christian Science I was...

At the time of my first healing in Christian Science I was an active member of a denominational church. I knew that God had healed me, and immediately wanted to know how the healing was done. As I read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy the truth unfolded to my thought and satisfied a hungry heart. Christian Science is the truth that I had always longed for, but did not know where to find it. My first healing, which was of tumors, took place in five treatments, through the work of a practitioner. I have also been healed of pneumonia, influenza, a skin trouble, and recently was wonderfully sustained when my only child, a son in young manhood, was assassinated, passing away instantly.

During this last experience my first thought was of the relationship of God and man, and I instantly realized that man in the image and likeness of God could never be destroyed; that the son of God was the only son there was, and he could never be separated from the Father; that "outside the material sense of things, all is harmony" (Science and Health, p. 489). Every argument of the carnal mind presented itself to me. First came the thought of loss and separation, but I knew that in the one Mind we both lived and moved and had our being, and there could be no separation there; and that the son of Mind was safe in Mind. I knew the qualities that made him beloved by all were the loving qualities of divine Mind which he reflected and would continue to reflect throughout eternity. The thought of companionship and association presented itself; there, too, I had to know that Mind manifested is all that I ever had associated with or ever could associate with.

Since I began the study of Christian Science it has met all my needs, mentally and physically, for which I am grateful; but I am infinitely more grateful for a better understanding of the Bible and a clearer vision of God and generic man. I am grateful for every avenue that Mrs. Eddy has established to spread the truth, and especially for The Christian Science Monitor, whose work is to publish all over the world the good news that Principle governs.
