Keeping pace with rapid striders

Going to the Christian Science Sunday School as a teen-ager was a major change in my life. It wasn't something that came easily. I loved my friends at my former church, respected the pastors, and enjoyed the social interchange that was a natural part of that church's activities. Nevertheless, there was a deeper spiritual yearning that Christian Science kindled in me. As I look back I am amazed at the profound influence Science had.

That hour each week in Sunday School added tremendous moral and spiritual dimension to my life. Being with others and considering the deep, spiritual lessons of the Bible moved me greatly, though outwardly I probably looked as nonchalant as the other pupils. From my study of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, I was awaking to the very real possibility that the Christianity which I had read about in the New Testament with all its healing works could be a living reality today.
