Christian Science came to me when I had no hope, and seemed to be without God. It was not physical healing I needed, but to know how to love my fellow-man. A dear woman called on me when I was struggling with hatred and resentment. I told her that I should like to know a way out of this awful burden which I could not overcome. Being a student of Christian Science, she told me that God is Love, and that man reflects this Love. Through attending the Christian Science church services and reading the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly, I began to see man as God created him. I was indeed grateful for this truth, for to know how to love others brought me much joy and peace. If ever a suggestion comes to dim this perfect creation, I know that, as Mrs. Eddy says, speaking of loving one's enemies, in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 10), "Even in belief you have but one (that, not in reality), and this one enemy is yourself—your erroneous belief that you have enemies; that evil is real; that aught but good exists in Science."

I have had many healings in Christian Science, of sick headaches, of an extreme nervous condition, of continual colds, and also of a bad temper. I am grateful for these and the many other healings I have received, but more grateful still for my increasing knowledge of man's relationship to God.—(Mrs.) Edith Wagner Teigen, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
