Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy,...

Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, gives us this admonition in our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 323): "If 'faithful over a few things,' we shall be made rulers over many; but the one unused talent decays and is lost." I wish to use this opportunity to express the sincere gratitude I feel for the teachings of Christian Science, which has completely transformed my existence from a state of loneliness and lack to one of happiness and abundance.

The change has been gradual over a period of about twenty years, but it certainly has proved God's law of progress. An unhappy disposition, believed to be the result of heredity, has yielded to the truth of man's joyous nature as the child of God. I am deeply grateful that our two children are having the blessing of spiritual instruction in the Christian Science Sunday School and are learning to apply the truth of God's dear love and protecting care for His children. They have had many proofs of the healing efficacy of Christian Science. One was our daughter's healing of chronic constipation, which a doctor, prior to our reliance on Christian Science, had said was incurable. This healing has been permanent.

Some time ago I had an opportunity to prove Mrs. Eddy's statement in Science and Health (p. 66), "Trials are proofs of God's care." I was struck by an automobile, and for a while I lost and regained consciousness off and no. During my conscious moments a fellow Christian Scientist helped me to repeat "the scientific statement of being," found on page 468 of our textbook, as well as other truths. After being taken to a city hospital, I requested that I be transferred to a Christian Science nursing home. There, in a spiritually scientific atmosphere and with the help of a consecrated practitioner, I recovered sufficiently to be able to return home in two and a half weeks.
