I have great cause for rejoicing, for the many blessings that have come to me through the study and application of Christian Science, the demonstrable truth as taught and demonstrated by its Discover and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy. Twenty-two years ago I was a very sick man and, having tried many material remedies, without result, knew not which way to turn for relief, when Christian Science was presented to me. I was a singer by profession, and when I could no longer depend upon my voice the future seemed very dark. A friend advised me to go to a practitioner, and in three treatments I was free, not only physically but in many ways. The change was so great that I was convinced that this must be the truth, the same healing truth that Jesus taught. I discarded all the medicines I had been using, and began an earnest study of Science and Health together with my Bible, which taught me to rely on God; and material remedies have never been resorted to since.

The way was very clearly pointed out to me, and I began the ascent. The trials have been many, but the mists have always cleared when I lived up to my highest understanding of the truth. The past eleven years have been more actively spent in the work of helping others, and one of the greatest blessings to me is the privilege of serving as Second Reader, voicing the Word of God to earnest seekers of the truth. No greater blessing could come to mankind than Christian Science, which teaches and demonstrates the omnipotence of God, good, and the nothingless of sin, sickness, and death. Jesus said, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Christian Science is the truth as taught by Jesus and is free for all.
