RADIO PROGRAM No. 233 - Overcoming Anxiety About Our Children

Speaker: I think most parents are interested in finding freedom from fear in regard to their children. The one unfailing source of freedom and peace is a correct understanding of God. I'm going to ask Douglas McClellan, of Ottawa, Canada to tell you how he learned he could always trust God for the care of his children. Just how did you gain this confidence in God's care, Mr. McClellan?

Mr. McClellan: I think I can answer your question best by telling you of an experience which my wife and I had with our daughter in the fall of 1952. But first may I say just briefly that my wife had begun the study of Christian Science and had put the children in the Sunday School several years before I became actively interested. In fact, for some time I was highly skeptical and somewhat antagonistic to what I then considered an unorthodox religion. I supposed that the healings were only of vague disturbances that probably were imaginary anyway. But then I witnessed several unmistakable, quick healings of our children, including one of a crushed finger overnight. As a result I too became convinced that Christian Science actually does heal serious conditions.

One evening when our little girl was about eight years old, she went out after supper to play while it was still light. The children were playing at a neighbor's and went out on a balcony overlooking a flagstone terrace. Apparently the child was playing on top of the railing and somehow fell to the stone terrace, a story below.
