I did not take up Christian Science for physical healing

I did not take up Christian Science for physical healing. Having lost my only son in the war and finding nothing helpful in the teachings of the denominational church of which I was then a member, I was searching for help and reading everything offered to me as comforting or helpful. Among the books offered was the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. As my grief would not let me sleep I read it almost entirely through in the nighttime, and then returned it, but parts of it kept recurring to me, until I was impelled to sit down and write for a copy. When I got it I again read it night after night, and its truths kept unfolding to me, little by little, and while this process was going on I discovered that I was healed of goiter of twenty years' standing; then when I realized that God is the only Physician, rupture and several minor ailments disappeared into their native nothingness. Being by this time quite convinced that I had at last found the truth, I went to a London church and was most lovingly helped by a member there, and later enjoyed the privilege of class instruction and became a member of that church, also of The Mother Church.

A little over a year ago a few of us who had become interested in Christian Science started reading the Lesson-Sermon together, and this has developed into a gathering of thirty-two people. Every discordant condition is yielding to Truth and I am finding myself free to give all my time to the work of Christian Science. My heart is full of gratitude to God and also to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, whose untiring effort has made this understanding of the Scriptures available to all,—(Mrs.)EVELINE A. ELLIS, Rosherville, Kent, England.
