RADIO PROGRAM No. 143 - Healing the Effects of Accident

On this program, David Nelles of Wilmington, Delaware, told of his own experience. The program was as follows:

Speaker: On all sides today we are constantly reminded to be careful at home, at work, on the highway. Such warnings are timely in view of the speed and mechanized nature of modern living. But too often they appeal only to fear. Today our message is one of confidence—confidence that divine help is available to you and me at all times. A man who has had firsthand evidence of this is our guest today, David Nelles of Wilmington, Delaware. Won't you tell us about it, Mr. Nelles?

Mr. Nelles: It happened in 1940 while I was working on a summer job between semesters at college. I was on the night shift in a chemical plant in the Detroit area. The machine I was operating was in bad repair. While I was trying to fix it, a belt broke, striking me in the face. I found that I couldn't see out of my left eye. I had to report the accident to the foreman, under company rules, and he immediately sent me to the plant hospital. I was told the condition was too serious to permit my going home that night. So I telephoned my parents and asked them to help me, through turning to God as we are taught in Christian Science.
