Introductions to Lectures

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN (Second Church).

Lecturer: Charles I. Ohrenstin; introduced by Percy Hisson Tamm, who said:—

When first I took up the study of Christian Science, it was with a great deal of skepticism. I had witnessed the wonderful healing of my wife, who at that time, over thirteen years ago, was a confirmed invalid, given up by the medical profession as a hopeless case, and doomed to die within six months. One of her kidneys had been removed and the other was said to be practically destroyed by bacteria. Besides this she suffered from a badly ulcerated stomach. I had been out to see her at the sanitarium where she was spending her time in misery, when one morning, a day or two later, she returned home with rosy cheeks, declaring that she had been instantaneously healed through Christian Science. There was no doubt that something extraordinary had happened to her; but we at home thought, naturally enough, that it was a case of hypnotism or something like that. Anyhow, I was made to promise to investigate the subject of Christian Science for myself, if the healing proved permanent. And it did. But as I said before, it was with great skepticism that I took up the study there was a year after my wife's healing. I was sure there was something wrong about Christian Science, and I was going to find out where it lay! But, to my surprise, I found that the study healed me of one thing after another; and I was soon convinced that at last I had got hold of the truth which I had long sought; and since then I have had ample opportunity to prove a statement I once heard, that the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, is the best handbook for any profession.
