Early in my experience in...

Early in my experience in Christian Science I memorized "the scientific statement of being," to be found on page 468 of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.

One day while I was at work a heavy casting became disengaged from the vise in which it had been placed, and fell on my foot. The pain was severe, and my first thought was to remove the shoe and sock so that I might see how badly my foot had been injured I then remembered that "the scientific statement of being" declares, "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter," and then goes on and tells us why. I meditated on this great truth, and the foot was forgotten. I went on with my job and experienced no further discomfort. That evening, when the shoe and sock were removed, I found that they had been cut through as with a sharp instrument, but there was no evidence of injury to the foot.
