A short testimony cannot tell of...

A short testimony cannot tell of all the blessings which Christian Science has brought into my life; so I will content myself with recounting one episode which made a great impression on me at the time. I was then a very young student of Christian Science and was serving as a junior deck officer in the British Merchant Service.

Before going on watch I always used to know that I could "of mine own self do nothing" (John 5:30), but that as an idea of divine Mind I could express God, whom Mrs. Eddy defines in part on page 587 of Science and Health as "the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal." Going on the bridge one morning at four o'clock I was told by the senior officer on watch that he was leaving me in charge of the watch while he made some calculations in the chartroom. It was very dark, and the visibility was deceptive due to scattered low-lying clouds, behind which a setting moon caused dense shadows to be cast on the surface of the sea ahead and on each side of the ship's course.
