“I wish to express my gratitude for the wonderful…”

I wish to express my gratitude for the wonderful help Christian Science has been to me for over four years. I had been a member of the Baptist church for ten years before becoming interested in Christian Science; but I had a problem my church could not solve for me,—one of hate. There was a member of my family who, I thought, had been very unloving to me, and I hated her. I knew it was wrong. My pastor and my friends told me it was wrong, and that I should love everybody. But none could tell me how to forgive and love her. After I took up the study of Christian Science, a practitioner pointed out to me that hate was an impersonal error, and really no part of any one. Then the truth dawned on me, and what a burden was lifted from me, and how grateful I was for this truth!

About six months after I began this wonderful study, a baby boy was born to us, and the birth was painless, despite all predictions to the contrary. We had a physician in accordance with the state law, and he was very much opposed to what he thought Christian Science was; but with the help of a loving practitioner everything was very harmonious. As the doctor was leaving that night he remarked, “I don’t know if it is Christian Science or what it is; but I know this much, that I have been a practicing physician for twenty-five years and never had a case like this before.” The boy is now four years old and has never tasted medicine of any kind.
