Resolved: To Watch Our Conversation

Those who have had no experience with Christian Science, its teaching and practice, may be inclined to dismiss it casually on the basis of what they believe it to be. Perhaps they may think of it as mere optimism, or the repetition of words which are supposed, by self-mesmerism or autosuggestion, temporarily to convince the believer that he is free of some particular inharmony.

What an awakening Christian Science holds in store for those who bring such misconceptions to the noonday sunlight of spiritual understanding and let it illumine consciousness through actual investigation, study, and healing! Such an awakening awaited the writer twenty-seven years ago when, as a young newspaperman, he was so convinced that his mis-judgment of Christian Science was valid that he kept the news announcements of its church services out of the columns which were under his care, believing he was rendering the community a benefit by so doing. When severe illness incapacitated him, not many months later, he turned to Christian Science as a last resort, and was completely healed.
