Words can never tell how...

Words can never tell how grateful I am for having known no religion other than Christian Science all my life. As a child I attended a Christian Science Sunday School and later joined The Mother Church and also branch churches wherever I lived. Although my husband was not a Scientist when we were married, he was interested and attended church with me. I am grateful that he too is now a member of The Mother Church and a branch church and that our children are being reared in the Sunday School.

We have had many wonderful proofs of the healing power of God, one of which I should like to tell. One of our boys had asked for, and was given, a ride on an ice-cream truck. The boy decided to jump from the truck before it had stopped completely, and in doing so fell on his head and lost consciousness. Before I was notified, the police, fire department, and an ambulance had been called, and although I tried to take him to our home nearby, the police refused to let me. However, before he was taken to a hospital, a practitioner was called, and prayerful work was begun immediately to realize his true selfhood as the perfect spiritual child of God, never separated from his true Father-Mother.

Upon arrival at the hospital, the boy was placed in the intensive-care ward, and a doctor was assigned to the case; but all were told we were Christian Scientists and wanted no medical treatment of any sort. These instructions were carried out during his entire stay, and we were assured from time to time that he was merely being cared for, not treated in any way.
