[Of Special Interest to Children]

Norman and Robin are young Christian Scientists. They have learned to understand God, our heavenly Father, as divine Mind, Life, Truth, and Love and to know their true selfhood as spiritual, made in God's own image and likeness and reflecting His goodness and power. They love to use the truths of Christian Science to help them with their lessons in school and to heal themselves when error seems to come in the shape of sickness or accident. They have often proved the truth of the promise which Christ Jesus gave to all of us when he said (John 14:12), "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also."

One day when Norman and Robin with their father and mother were visiting in Grandmother's house, they played a jolly game, laughing and pushing each other around and having a lot of fun. Somehow Norman stumbled backwards against the sharp corner of a stone window ledge which made quite a deep cut in the back of his head. The pain seemed very bad and Grandmother said, "Let us all say 'the scientific statement of being.'"

Mary Baker Eddy gives us this statement in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." It begins (p. 468): "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all."
