For children

"I am with thee ..., saith the Lord"

Nathan sat low in his seat, looking down at the wooden floor of the church. He was unhappy.

Nathan loved Wednesday evening testimony meetings at the Christian Science church. He went almost every week and sat quietly between his mom and dad. He wanted to hear every word. He especially liked the Bible stories the First Reader read from behind the walnut desk at the front of the church. And he liked Mrs. Eddy's words from Science and Health.

But what Nathan loved most were the testimonies that came after the Lord's Prayer and the second hymn. People in the audience just stood up and told what they were learning about God's goodness. They talked about how they had been healed by trusting in His constant care. It was beautiful.
