In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 596), "Paganism and agnosticism may define Deity as 'the great unknowable;' but Christian Science brings God much nearer to man, and makes Him better known as the All-in-all, forever near." I think that this better understanding of God is the thing for which I am most grateful. But I also give thanks for many healings, for the work of the practitioners, and for the members of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship, whose work has enlightened and healed me.

On one memorable occasion after hearing a lecture I was awakened in the middle of the night by a very alarming condition. I reached out urgently in my thought for help as we are taught to do in Christian Science and recalled at once an effective illustration the lecturer had given to prove the omnipresence and omnipotence of God. The healing must have been instantaneous, for the next thing I knew it was morning and my usual time for beginning the day.

Christian Science has changed my whole outlook on life in general, and it has been a constant and never-failing help in a varied business career, which has often demanded what I could never have given it without the knowledge of Science. On several occasions the unemployment problem was wondrously solved at times when work was difficult to obtain.
