I have a message of thanksgiving...

I have a message of thanksgiving and an account of God's ever-present help and guidance to share. At the age of seventeen I began studying Christian Science at the request of my mother. I continued to do so rather spasmodically for a few years, until I finally realized I could not do without this Science.

When war broke out in 1939, I was serving with the British Merchant Navy, and I remained in that service for the entire period of hostilities. I literally had not one scratch to show that I had been on active service in many so-called danger zones for six years, never once even having to abandon ship. I attribute my wonderful protection to the fact that I studied the Lesson-Sermon from the Christian Science Quarterly every day and tried to apply my understanding of the law of divine Love when danger seemed apparent. The Ninety-first Psalm was an inspiring help to me, particularly these verses: "Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday."
