From early childhood I had a deep interest in religion and eagerly accepted any opportunity to attend church services, no matter what the denomination. But my interest in religion was motivated more from a fear of death than from a love of life.

When I was in high school my family lived with an aunt who was a Christian Scientist. At the first service we attended at her branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I felt a wonderful sense of peace. I did not become a serious student of Christian Science at that time (I remember having no hope that I would ever overcome the cigarette habit), but I did attend the Sunday School for a year.
