"Trials are proofs of God's care"

[Of Special Interest to Juniors]

From the very first, Marie loved the Christian Science Sunday School. She loved its teachings. She learned that God is Spirit, the loving Father-Mother, and that man is God's perfect image. She learned also that God is always present to help anyone in trouble—forgiving the repentant sinner, healing the sick, and comforting the sorrowing. This new concept of God was precious to her. The Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes and the Lord's Prayer, all had a new meaning. Marie's heart sang with joy. It was like having wings and being able to fly above the earth— above all the false beliefs that she had previously been taught and had accepted.

After several years had passed, in which Marie was free from illness, she decided that because she was now a Christian Scientist, she would never be sick anymore. But during an epidemic, in spite of her decision, she too became very ill. The sickness seemed so real that it was necessary to ask for help from a practitioner, who had a clear understanding of God's healing power.
