Through Spirit's lens

One of an occasional series of articles by young people who have in recent years become Christian Scientists. They explain how they became interested in Christian Science, what convinced them of its utility and truth, and how its teachings have changed their lives.

Several years ago when I was just out of college, I worked in the regional communication center of an international news service. Like many young newsmen, I was aggressive and materially oriented. With cool cynicism I believed that the bigger the drama, the larger the catastrophe, the weirder the event (and the more thunderously I reported it), the more successful I would be. If an oil well exploded in the area while I was working, so much the better, for I saw such an event as an opportunity for my byline to receive national exposure. I was relatively successful, rising quickly from trainee to de facto news editor for nine states.
