Our family came into Christian Science...

Our family came into Christian Science through my father, who was a deep Bible student. He had searched for years for an inspiring and workable religion.

Our family had always wanted to live away from the city, and eventually we moved to a suburban residence. Commuting on the train one day, my father met a business friend who was surprised to see him. Finding out that my father had become a neighbor, he said, "I'll have my wife call on your wife."

This man's wife called on my mother, and as she was leaving she said: "Everybody on your block will invite you to his or her church. We go to the Christian Science church; if you ever care to come, we will be happy to see you."
