Three years ago during a spring vacation from college, my interest in Christian Science had a rebirth through a get-together given by a relative. Most of the guests were Christian Scientist.

It had been eleven years since I last attended Christian Science Sunday School. At sixteen, feeling uncertain about my own convictions, I had begun the search for truth in other denominations, although I still identified myself as a Christian Scientist.

I was about to leave the party when a Christian Science practitioner introduced herself to me and included me with friends sitting at her table. Everything stirred inside me as I listened, and as I watched the humble yet firm manner and felt the sincerity of this individual. I was irresistibly drawn by the kindness and love she expressed. Before I left the party, I asked for an appointment the following week to talk more about Christian Science.
