In The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany by...

In The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany by Mrs. Eddy we read (p. 165): "As an active portion of one stupendous whole, goodness identifies man with universal good. Thus may each member of this church rise above the oft-repeated inquiry, What am I? to the scientific response: I am able to impart truth, health, and happiness, and this is my rock of salvation and my reason for existing."

I read this statement when I was in great need of finding a reason for living. I had been ill, and I didn't want to move in with and be dependent on either of my children. Every time I would wonder what to do or where to go I would realize, I am here "to impart truth, health, and happiness." I prayed for myself and pondered this truth for several months. Gradually I began to feel better. All of this time I had kept up with studying the Bible Lesson, reading all of our Christian Science periodicals, attending my branch church, and continuing with my Reading Room activity.
