I am one of those privileged persons, of whom there are now many, who was born into this world under Christian Science treatment and who attended the Christian Science Sunday School. I have had class instruction and have enjoyed the opportunity to serve in branch churches.

Even so, with such a fine background, there are times when we allow the false picture of human events to take precedence over our understanding of spiritual reality, as taught us in Christian Science. Such a situation presented itself to me for acceptance in the following manner.

One evening another Christian Science couple were visiting my husband and me in our apartment. Since the city in which we lived was in the throes of a crime wave, that subject dominated the conversation. After our guests left, I did not pray in Christian Science to correct or reverse the false picture with the spiritual reality of a universe under God's government. Instead, I went to sleep still thinking about the crime situation.
