That "man's extremity is God's opportunity" was surely proved to me when Christian Science was first brought to my attention through my attending a Christian Science lecture.

At this time I was under medical treatment for nervous gastric ulcers. I had suffered from these for over twenty yeas and at the age of twenty-one had undergone a major operation, with no beneficial results. A few months after I attended the lecture, I had a severe attack. The doctor said he could do nothing other than that which had been done, and he doubted very much my recovering at all. I was put on a restricted diet and confined to my bed. All this time I had implicit faith in the healing efficacy of Christian Science, but did not understand how to apply it. In the midst of my humble yearning to be guided, a friend visited me and asked me to try Christian Science. The help of a practitioner was asked for on a Friday morning, and on the following Tuesday I was up and walking around outdoors, able to eat whatever I desired.
