First case

It was a family rule: being the youngest in the family, Eric had to empty the wastebaskets once a week on all three floors of his home. One time, as he was doing his chore, Eric found out he could be a Christian Science practitioner.

He heard a cry coming from the dining room and ran to see what had happened. His mom was on the floor with her head in her hands. Above her the heavy wrought-iron chandelier, with its pointed end, was spinning tipsily.

Now, when you call a Christian Science practitioner for help, he doesn't ask a lot of questions about what's wrong, because a practitioner is more interested in praying and in knowing and giving answers about what's true. So instead of asking, "What happened?" Eric told his mom, "God is everywhere, and nothing apart from Him is present or has power." Science and Health, p. 473. Eric was quoting Mrs. Eddy. He had learned this truth in the Christian Science Sunday School when he was only five. It's from Science and Health.
