Testimonies of Healing

What a surge of gratitude wells up in our hearts when we reflect upon the divine wisdom which inspired our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, to establish the Wednesday evening testimony meetings! Christian Scientists bear witness to the fact that many times they have gone to these meetings sorrowful and heavy with suggestions of doubt, discouragement, or physical suffering, and have come away refreshed and strengthened; and in numerous instances they have experienced spiritual uplifting, and physical and moral healings during the services.

The Psalmist sang, "I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people." In the Manual of The Mother Church, Mrs. Eddy writes (Art. VIII, Sect. 24), "Testimony in regard to the healing of the sick is highly important." Following the order of service for the Wednesday meetings given in the Manual (p. 122), the Reader makes the following announcement: "This meeting is now open for experiences, testimonies, and remarks on Christian Science."
