"Beloved Christian Scientists...

"Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them. It is plain that nothing can be added to the mind already full." This quotation from page 210 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" by Mrs. Eddy has meant much to me. It was the first passage from her writings with which I worked in starting my study of Christian Science.

It had been my privilege to live for four years with a girl who was reared in Christian Science, and I had witnessed many wonderful healings and demonstrations in her experience. I had been suffering from a dislocated sacrum for several years, and at a time when we were attending summer school I became so crippled that I entered the university hospital. The doctors wanted to perform an operation, but I had no assurance that what they planned to do would help. My nerves were in a bad condition, and I had lost many pounds in a very few weeks. I was released from the hospital without having had the operation, which I had not felt able to face. Through this ordeal my roommate was very kind and understanding. She gave me the pamphlet entitled "God's Law of Adjustment and Other Articles" and encouraged me to turn to Christian Science.

When we returned to our teaching jobs in the fall, we had many problems to solve. My roommate said that we needed to get our thinking straight and asked if I would object to doing some prayerful work to help us in our thinking. I then did get to work, using the above quotation from Miscellany and studying regularly the Lesson-Sermon, outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly. Our problems at school were worked out harmoniously, and some time during this period of diligent prayer and study my physical difficulty was completely healed. There has been no recurrence of it, and I thank God every day for this wonderful healing.
