When Christian Science was first brought to my attention...

When Christian Science was first brought to my attention I was in the depths of despair, not knowing which way to turn for help. I had been in bed for six months and thought I should never be able to leave it again. Occasionally I would get up for a little while, but I was ill and depressed.

Some friends, who were desirous that I should gain my health, and who were interested in Christian Science, asked me to attend a Christian Science lecture which was to be given one Sunday afternoon. I accepted the invitation and went with them. Because of my weakened condition I had to be assisted up the stairs into the lecture room. It was very trying for me, in my state of thought, to sit through the lecture, as I was very uncomfortable and full of self-pity. I listened to the lecture, but not knowing anything about Christian Science, it did not seem to mean much to me. Nevertheless, it meant my salvation, for at the close of the lecture the speaker spoke of his own healing, which impressed me very much.
