I wish to express my profound...

I wish to express my profound gratitude to God for Christ Jesus, our Way-shower, and for our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. Through her divinely inspired and understandable interpretation of the Bible, as presented to us through her textbook, Science and Health, and her other writings, Mrs. Eddy has given us the truths of God and man.

From youth to about the age of eighteen I regularly attended orthodox church services, but for the next twenty-five years I rarely attended any church service. As I now know, I was at that time laboring under the blind belief that life and intelligence are in matter, and I could not attain any sense of satisfaction or understanding.

Then I was suddenly stricken with symptoms of a dreaded so-called incurable disease. The local physician sent me to a specialist for observation, and I was placed in one of our large eastern city hospitals under the care of expert specialists. After one week of observation, testing, and X-raying, it was decided I should undergo a surgical operation which was considered very serious, and the possibility of my surviving was doubtful. The operation was performed, and after a period of twenty days I was released from the hospital with the understanding that I would remain in the city until given permission to take the one-hundred-mile trip to my home.
