In Isaiah we read (55:1, 3): "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters. ... Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live." Nearly thirty years ago in a large midwestern city I was led to attend my first Wednesday testimony meeting at a Christian Science church. At the time I was suffering from a distressing physical condition and felt alone, friendless, and wretched. In despair I entered the open door of the church edifice, scarcely realizing what I was doing. As I listened to the hymns and the reading from the desk I was cheered. The testimonies brought me new hope, for some of those who testified told of healings of far more serious conditions than that which disturbed me.

Following the service, I stopped at the Christian Science Reading Room mentioned in the notices read from the desk. The librarian kindly loaned me a Bible and a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, as well as a Christian Science Quarterly. That very evening I began the study of the Bible Lessons, and gradually I found myself free from my difficulty. I obtained a satisfactory position with a good income and gained a much happier outlook on life.
