That I may in daily living be worthy, in an ever increasing degree, to "bear witness unto the truth" as revealed to us in Christian Science is the desire which has sprung from my gratitude for the regenerating, healing power of Truth.

When Christian Science was brought to my notice ten years ago, I was not only seeking a practical, reasonable doctrine of the mission of Christ Jesus on earth; I had arrived logically at the conclusion, by way of college training and four years of research in medical therapy, that the medical theory of the healing of disease was erroneous, without a real fundamental law to sustain it. Though I almost immediately accepted Christian Science as the true doctrine of the Christ, and believed fully in its healing efficacy, I found it most difficult to lay off my trust in the philosophy of life as expressed by our ancient and modern philosophers. I thought Mrs. Eddy very audacious to attempt in one little volume to overrule the wisdom of the past ages. But divine Love led me gradually out of this maze of human, erring thinking, until I saw clearly how it was that Mrs. Eddy could not have done otherwise, since she was looking away from earth to eternal Truth. Her eye was single, and nothing but the true light could enter her vision.

During these ten years I have had unnumbered proofs of the healing power of Truth. Shortly after starting my study of the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I laid off eyeglasses, which I had worn for several years. I have never worn them since. I was healed, within one hour, of the corrosive burn of concentrated sulphuric acid, which had covered one side of my face. Most of all, I am grateful for the constant proofs of God's protecting care, and for the higher realization which the study of Christian Science has brought to me of my duty to God and man.
