Christian Science was first...

Christian Science was first brought to my attention, when I was a little boy, by relatives who were visiting us. They were students of this Science and earnestly tried to live up to its high ideals. Some mention was made of their religion, but it aroused so much opposition and ridicule from members of my family that there was no further discussion. It had made an impression on me, however, for I saw the beautiful lives these relatives lived and, even as a child, knew they must have a practical, demonstrable religion.

Nearly fifteen years later I attended a Wednesday evening meeting in a Christian Science church and was much impressed. I particularly noted the number of men present, as the midweek prayer meetings to which I was accustomed were attended very largely by women. Aside from casual attendance at the Wednesday evening meetings and Sunday services at this and other Christian Science churches in the community, however, I made no further effort to learn more of this religion.
