I feel that I owe Christian Science...

I feel that I owe Christian Science a great debt of gratitude, and I should like to tell how it has blessed me beyond anything I could have hoped for.

About twenty-six years ago, when I had achieved what to my mind was success—the gaining of worldly goods, and so forth—there came a great change in my life. The things I thought so vital to my happiness began crumbling around me, and I felt that I had lost all my friends. But it was proved to me that "man's extremity is God's opportunity." After I saw that by my own efforts I could do nothing, and that if I should again build my castles without God's help they would come to the same sorry end, I turned away from my broken hopes with a deep and sincere desire to be of service to God. I was willing to go into slums and foreign lands and preach His gospel to the poor and the heathen. With this desire a heavy burden dropped from my shoulders.
