Dispersing the Mist

Are not some of us inclined to think that giving a testimony is something that undoubtedly should be done, but preferably by someone other than ourselves? Let us examine the reason for this.

In the Manual of The Mother Church, our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, has wisely provided that the latter portion of these meetings be devoted to the giving of testimonies of Christian Science healing and remarks pertaining to that subject. Webster defines "testify" as "to bear witness to." What is there of greater value than the knowledge and understanding of Christian Science, and what greater privilege could one have than to bear witness to the unfoldment of Truth in his own consciousness? From the standpoint of a Christian Scientist this should be his most joyous activity. What then must it mean to the numerous visitors who come to our meetings seeking the solution to some mental or physical problem? Few of us fully realize what good we do by the relating of a simple experience of the healing power of Truth; not only the healing of physical conditions but of sin, sorrow and mental diseases of all kinds.
