One of the greatest blessings in my life has been the privilege of attending the Christian Science Sunday School. It is through this wonderful activity that I have been enabled to gain a small understanding of the beautiful truth taught and demonstrated in Christian Science. During the ten years in which it has been my privilege to attend the Christian Science Sunday School, I have had innumerable opportunities of proving God's omnipotence and omnipresence. I should like to relate one experience which stands out very clearly as a positive proof that Love "never faileth" and that "perfect love casteth out fear."

When I was a senior in high school the argument presented itself that a certain subject was very difficult for me to master. Instead of denying this falsity at once, I let it grow, and so came under its suppositional power. It kept growing until my marks became such that, had I known nothing about Christian Science, failure would have been inevitable. My teacher, knowing that I was putting forth my best efforts in that subject and that my graduation depended upon my passing in it, did all in her power to aid me, but still I did not succeed in gaining an understanding of the required work. The fear that failure was certain was the error that was holding me back.

A few days before the final semester examination, after every material means had proved futile, and mortal mind with its arguments of fear and confusion seemed to be controlling me, I realized that "man's extremity is God's opportunity," and so I turned to that "perfect love" which "casteth out fear." Through the loving help of a very dear Christian Science friend, all sense of fear and discouragement was entirely overcome before the examination took place. I went to the classroom with perfect confidence in the power of God, knowing that Love "never faileth," and so man, the reflection of divine Love, "never faileth." I worked every problem immediately, and, needless to say, the results were harmonious. I had made only one slight error, so was given a mark of ninety-eight. Seventy was the mark required for passing.
