The Healing Ministry

A man called at the Reading Room to ask if he could read something about the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. The librarian invited him into the study room and gave him "The Life of Mary Baker Eddy" by Sibyl Wilbur. He read for two hours.

When he came out to go to his home, he told the librarian his reason for asking about our Leader. He said that his two children had just returned to England after spending the war years in America, and when they came back they asked their parents to let them attend the Christian Science Sunday School. The parents felt they should know something authentic about Christian Science and Mrs. Eddy before giving their permission. After this man had talked with the librarian for some time he said he was willing to let the children attend our Sunday School. He seemed quite happy when he left, and accepted an invitation to a forthcoming lecture, which he attended.

Later in the year he visited this Reading Room again and purchased two copies of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy as Christmas gifts for his children. He also bought four copies of the Christian Science Quarterly. for he and his wife had begun the study of the Lesson-Sermon. He was very grateful for the wonderful inspiration and joy which they were all finding in this study.
