In reviewing some of the countless blessings I have received through the study and application of Christian Science, I recognize how grateful I am to know that man is the expression of God. I have studied and applied Christian Science as far back as I can remember. But for me one of the most difficult lessons has been freedom of expression.

In school I was terrified at giving speeches. Only after I was in college and started giving testimonies at Wednesday evening meetings in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, did I begin to lose this fear. For many years after this, even though I could freely speak in church meetings, I had to work to carry this freedom into public speaking outside church. The realization that I was denying God's power and presence finally quieted this fear and left me free. Of course, gratitude for the many ways in which Christian Science was demonstrated in my experience unsealed my lips in church and is now unsealing my lips to speak God's praises outside church.
