With a deep sense of gratitude to God and to our beloved...

With a deep sense of gratitude to God and to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for all the good that has come into my life through the study of Christian Science, I wish to relate a few experiences. One day in May, 1937, when I was putting away some laundry, I was stricken with a condition which seemed unbearable. Closing my eyes, I said, "Man can at no time be in any position or place that is undesirable, because he reflects God, and God is good, all harmonious." With that I managed to get off the chair on which I had been standing and go to my room, where I read the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, several favorite chapters in the Bible, and a Christian Science lecture. After two hours I was able to go about my work with no further trouble. During the night I awakened, and error again tried to present itself, claiming that I could not move, but I rebuked it, and that was the end of the trouble.

Among the experiences of members of my family was the rapid healing of an injured hand. A badly sprained ankle was also healed, with no loss of time from school. Both of these healings were effected with the help of a kind practitioner.

Words could never express what Christian Science means to me. I am sincerely grateful for all the activities of the movement. I am especially grateful for membership in The Mother Church and in a branch church, where it is a wonderful privilege to be active. I am grateful for our practitioners, our periodicals, and our Wednesday evening testimony meetings; but I am most grateful for the spiritual inspiration I have gained. May I so live that I may be worthy of the name "Christian Scientist."—(Mrs.) Hazel Irene Ferguson, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
