I often think of Christian Science as the "blue print" to the kingdom of God. By this I mean Christian Science has been proved to me to be the way to understand God aright. This has been ably expressed in the title of our textbook by its author, Mary Baker Eddy, for she calls it "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." This book certainly affords me a key to the understanding of God and of man made in God's image and likeness. Herein we are shown clearly, definitely, and conclusively just how God's ever-present and ever-operative laws define and govern man and the universe.

As a result of my knowing some of these great truths as taught in Christian Science, the past three years have been the most eventful in my experience. In the fall of 1932 I developed a serious eye trouble, which was very shortly diagnosed by the medical world as tuberculosis of the eyes. After several months of consulting a physician daily, and receiving hourly medical treatment a great part of the time, the sight of both eyes became practically lost.

When returning from the doctor's office one Sunday, we passed some friends just leaving the Christian Science services. My wife hailed these friends and invited them home with us for dinner. They accepted only on the condition that we would excuse them early so they might attend a Christian Science lecture that was to be given that afternoon. During their visit they told me of Christian Science, and invited us to attend the lecture with them. Although we knew they were Christian Scientists, this fact did not seem to mean much to either of us at the time, for we knew nothing about the subject.
