One evening in January when...

One evening in January when going to a business meeting of our church, I stepped off the sidewalk on to a lawn to avoid walking in melting ice. It was dark, and I did not see the wires that were strung on either side of the narrow walk I was crossing. I fell across both wires and landed, arms outstretched, on the sidewalk. I remember declaring the unreality of the experience and the allness of God.

Several women who were also going to the meeting came to my assistance, and I managed to get to the ladies' room in the church building. I assured my friends that I was well and sent them on up to the meeting while I cleaned off my dress and coat. Then went up. Several minutes later I began to be in great pain. I felt that something was wrong internally, and I worked to know as best I could that "the relations of God and man, divine Principle and idea, are indestructible in Science; and Science knows no lapse from nor return to harmony, but holds the divine order or spiritual law, in which God and all that He creates are perfect and eternal, to have remained unchanged in its eternal history" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, pp. 470, 471). I thought of going down to the telephone to call for help, but I realized that all my friends and the practitioners I know would be at this meeting. When I was unable to stand the pain any longer, I leaned forward and whispered to the man sitting in front of me, who was a friend of my family and a consecrated worker in Christian Science, that I was suffering and asked him to help me.
