The love of God led me to Christian Science

The love of God led me to Christian Science. At a time when I was feeling almost overcome with my own problems, my husband was confined to bed with arthritis. One evening I was so depressed that I left the house to go to a nearby store that had a soda fountain where I thought I could perhaps meet someone to chat with.

On my way, I looked down a side street and noticed a bungalow that was all lighted up. I was curious about the gathering, and I decided to stop and find out what was going on. People were entering the building, so I went in also. I discovered that I had walked into a Church of Christ, Scientist, and that this was a Wednesday testimony meeting. The Reader announced that members of the congregation were welcome to help themselves to free literature on Christian Science as they left the church, so I took a copy of The Christian Science Journal. I felt so uplifted that I wanted to keep on singing the beautiful hymns I had heard at the service. I said to myself, "There is something about this church! I came here so depressed, and now I feel so uplifted."
