It was my great privilege to attend...

It was my great privilege to attend the Christian Science Sunday School until the age of twenty, and I am deeply grateful for the many benefits and healings I have received through the sincere application of the lessons learned in Sunday School.

At the age of three and a half years, my little boy had an experience which proves the healing power of Christian Science. My mother and I, with my son, had been visiting some relatives. When the time came to return home, my uncle gave us a lift in his car to the next town, where we were to take a bus for the rest of our journey. However, we had not gone very far in the car when one of the doors flew open and my son fell out. Instantly I denied firmly and constantly the erroneous suggestions that tried to crowd into my consciousness. As we went back to the child I declared that God is All-in-all and that an idea of God can never fall or be separated from the one infinite Mind, God, who is All. The picture that mortal mind presented to us as we picked up the child was most distressing.

When we arrived at the town, my mother went to the nearest telephone and asked a Christian Science practitioner for help, and treatment was started at once. Because of the journey before us, I took the child into the local hospital, where he was cleaned and the wounds were dressed. At this hospital great fear was expressed for the safety of the child, some stitches were taken, and the doctor said that there was a possibility of a skull fracture. We were detained at the hospital for about an hour, and then my uncle drove us home.
