About thirty-three years ago...

About thirty-three years ago Christian Science was vividly brought to my notice by the healing of a sister, who had suffered for some years from a serious internal difficulty. The change in her from a troubled semi-invalid to a happy, active young mother was very marked.

Seeking for an explanation of this transformation, I began to take a spasmodic interest in the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. From time to time I would exclaim: "The standard is too high. The demands are too great. I am not good enough!" Then the textbook would be put away in a drawer, and I would try to forget it. But the Christ, Truth, was insistently saying (Rev. 3:20), "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." At last I opened the door of consciousness and let in the healing, saving Christ.
