My first experience in Christian Science...

My first experience in Christian Science was a healing of grief when my brother passed on. We had been very close to each other, and I was hurt and bitter. Shortly after his passing, my husband and I attended a Church of Christ, Scientist, and I thought I would have to leave because I seemed to have no control over my tears. Then we sang Mrs. Eddy's "Communion Hymn." My freedom from grief began when we sang the second verse, which reads (Poems, P. 75),

"Mourner, it calls you,—'Come to my bosom,
Love wipes your tears all away,
And will lift the shade of gloom,
And for you make radiant room
Midst the glories of one endless day.'"
