Twenty-six years ago I attended...

Twenty-six years ago I attended my first Christian Science service with no thought of becoming a student of this religion, much less a member of the church. Then many disappointments and a great feeling of depression caused my heart, like the Psalmist's, to cry out for the living God. Ten years elapsed, however, before I decided to investigate Science. Though I had been a member of an orthodox church since childhood, it had failed to meet my need. Loving friends recommended that I give Christian Science a trial, which I willingly did. Immediately I realized that I had found the "pearl of great price."

In Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 322) we read, "The sharp experiences of belief in the supposititious life of matter, as well as our disappointments and ceaseless woes, turn us like tired children to the arms of divine Love." Today my heart overflows with joy and gratitude to God for the privilege of being a student of Science, and for the opportunity of studying daily the Lesson-Sermon from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook.
