Through my wife, about twenty-six years ago I became acquainted with Christian Science, discovered and founded by Mrs. Eddy.

One of my first healings in this religion was that of a kidney stone. Supported by the prayerful metaphysical work of a Christian Science practitioner, I got rid of this painful condition after about a week. The stone did not dissolve but was eliminated. I learned very quickly that it is unnecessary to outline how a problem is to be solved. The solution unfolds when we put our complete trust in God.

I say with gratitude that the truths of Science I have been able to grasp enable me to help others occasionally with a problem. In so doing, I always realize, besides many other truths, that God, Spirit, cannot be overcome with this or that sickness or create an unpleasant condition or situation. Therefore man, His child, a spiritual idea, can never be touched by inharmony. As God's image man must continually express the perfection of God, his Father. Friends have been encouraged and helped by my conviction that the real man is perfect. This fills me with joy.
