Today, some twenty years after...

Today, some twenty years after my parents enrolled me in a Christian Science Sunday School, I wish to express my gratitude for and testify to the innumerable blessings and healings that I have experienced through the study and application of Christian Science.

In an often-quoted sentence in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy states (p. 233), "Every day makes its demands upon us for higher proofs rather than professions of Christian power." It was not until I was in the Navy during World War II, however, that I realized this to be true. Separated from parental protection, I faced the challenges of many and varied problems by prayerfully studying Science at every opportunity.

In one instance I walked away unhurt from a wrecked jeep in which I had been riding and which overturned when a front wheel struck a rock. On another occasion I was healed of a serious fever. I was able to avoid the use of all medicaments and to place my reliance solely on the healing power of Truth. In a few days I was declared wholly free from the fever, and I was discharged from the Navy sick bay.
