I'm grateful for Christian Science because I know it's dynamic— it really heals.

In the midst of one especially active day at work I felt ill and decided to go home. While walking down the street I found it difficult to continue, so I stopped and leaned against a building for support. Then this sentence from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy came forcefully to mind (p. 14): "Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,—neither in nor of matter,—and the body will then utter no complaints. If suffering from a belief in sickness, you will find yourself suddenly well." Our Leader's succinct statement brought a flood of spiritual inspiration. Quite naturally I recognized my real nature as the perfect, whole child of God—harmonious being, true not only for "a single moment" but for eternity. All the bodily complaints were silenced, and I went on my way rejoicing because I'd been instantaneously healed.
