During a Wednesday evening...

During a Wednesday evening testimony meeting in The Mother Church a testifier quoted the line from Mrs. Eddy's poem (Poems, p. 75), "Felt ye the power of the Word?" Suddenly the importance of the Word became illumined for me. Later I pondered these words in Revelation (12:10–12): "Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, ... for the accuser of our brethren is cast down. ... And they overcame him ... by the word of their testimony. ... Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them." And I studied their interpretation as given in the chapter entitled "The Apocalypse" in our textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. It is in the spirit of rejoicing, "for the accuser is not there, and Love sends forth her primal and everlasting strain" (ibid., p. 568), that I send in this testimony, realizing that all may gain "salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God" through the earnest study and application of Christian Science.

The following experience is one evidence of the healing power of this Science. For some time I had had difficulty in walking, due to a spastic condition. The muscles of the leg would become so tense that I could scarcely walk because of the pain. I noticed too that whenever something was required that seemed to be out of my particular orbit of experience, such as doing extra housework or carrying heavy weights, physically or mentally, the leg became all the more painful.
