To be an unprejudiced mind

Something has happened in my life to expand my freedom to talk to people about Christian Science and its value. The turning point came when I got angry at a passage in Science and Health.

There Mrs. Eddy writes: "Millions of unprejudiced minds— simple seekers for Truth, weary wanderers, athirst in the desert —are waiting and watching for rest and drink." Science and Health, p. 570.

The word millions got to me. "Dear God," I prayed, "it has been a long time since I've seen even one unprejudiced mind." It seemed as if everyone around me were wrapped up in strong human opinions and preconceptions—about how to raise kids, how to get skinny, how to stay healthy. Religion seemed like just one more excuse to have a preconceived opinion. I couldn't remember the last time I had given somebody Science and Health.
