In sincere gratitude for Christian Science...

In sincere gratitude for Christian Science, I testify to occasions of divine protection experienced in this war.

Leaving France in June, 1940, I was on the "Lancastria," which was bombed, and sank with a very heavy loss of life. Thanks to the daily study of the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, which enables one to keep thought above the clouds of sense testimony, I was immediately able to realize the presence of one Mind. I stripped and jumped overboard from a great height and with no lifebelt, advising others, who seemed too stunned to think, to do the same. The scene of fire and terror presented to human sense was beyond description. For over half an hour, while I was swimming or floating, the thought, "I shall drown; I can't keep going," knocked for admittance, but the strong affirmation, "God is my Life," always proved more powerful. With my complete calming of thought, two exhausted men clinging to a piece of wood passed me. I shared this raft and tried to give the men confidence, and after a quarter of an hour we were picked up.
