The privilege of attending the...

The privilege of attending the Christian Science Sunday School was mine from the time I was six years old, but my attendance was not very regular until I reached my teens. I am very grateful for the loving help of Sunday School teachers and other Christian Science friends and practitioners.

Although I graduated from high school in 1932, during the depression, I had continuous employment in my work as a secretary from that time. When one position ended, another unfolded, with not more than two weeks between any of them. I relied on Science constantly in working out the problem of place, and each new position showed progress. Two of them lasted five years.

I wish to relate a healing which helped me to learn the importance of doing proper unselfish protective work, as we are taught in Christian Science. Up to the time I took my last position I had never had influenza. During the first winter there, however, I heard a great deal of talk about this trouble, and everyone in the office had had to stay home at one time or another because of it. Finally, I too had to go home. I telephoned a Christian Science practitioner for treatment, and the fever was gone about two hours later; the weakness left after about three days, and I then returned to work. The following winter this whole incident was repeated exactly as before.
