Up to the First World War I had...

Up to the First World War I had been a regular attendant at some place of worship. In 1915 I joined the Army, was badly wounded in France, and was discharged two years later, unfit for further service. Today I feel very grateful for that early religious training; it saved me from many pitfalls during my war service.

When I returned to normal life, I was not embittered, nor had I lost my belief that there is a God, but I had no desire to attend any church. My wife suffered a severe nervous breakdown, brought about by the loss of our first child. Her doctors had informed me there was nothing else that they could do for her. I can clearly remember how earnestly I desire that something could be done to make her well.

When we entered the Christian Science church for the first time, we both thought that we had done so out of curiosity; but it was not long before we came to know that it was an answer to my prayer. My wife was helped most lovingly by a Christian Science practitioner and was quickly restored to normal health. We are both grateful for this help and for the healing which resulted.
