Seeking and Finding

[From a librarian's report]

One of the most important functions of our church is the Christian Science Reading Room. In "We Knew Mary Baker Eddy," First Series (pp. 50, 51), we read: "We may think of our Reading Rooms, too, as a spiritual home and sacred retreat for the church members, as well as for inquirers. In them is spread a banquet of sustaining food for the seeker after healing of mind and body."

A young woman came in and asked if she might borrow a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. She explained that she had no previous knowledge of Christian Science but that the window display had aroused her interest in reading the book, which she hoped would give her a clearer understanding of the Bible.

A young man reported that he had purchased a copy of Science and Health some weeks before. Since reading it, he had been able to bend and use his body in a manner that, according to a physician's diagnosis, he would never be able to do. He was eager to learn what additional books he could obtain to continue with his reading. He was shown how to study the Lesson-Sermon outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly.
