As a very small boy I was enrolled...

As a very small boy I was enrolled in the Christian Science Sunday School. Unfortunately I did not grasp the import of the Science of Mind-healing until I was faced with mounting problems during five years of service in the Army.

The memory that stayed with me most after I left Sunday School was the special interest in the class expressed by our Sunday School teacher. It was the love he showed us that later kept alive my interest in Science after I strayed considerably from the paths of its teachings. The recollection of this love gave me the courage to take up the study of Christian Science once again and call upon its great healing power in time of need.

Each problem and trial has been a steppingstone to further advancement and to a workable understanding of Christian Science. I left the Army in 1945 and went to work as a civilian, but found that it was hard to adjust myself to the change. In 1946 I became an associate for a few months at the Sanatorium of the Christian Science Benevolent Association, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. This position offered me an opportunity to study and work in an atmosphere of unlimited good, and I gained a better understanding of home and companionship.
