Christian Science was introduced to my parents when I was five years old. A salesman who called weekly at the automobile supply store where my father was employed became aware that my father had a drinking problem and gave him a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. In response to my father's statement that he couldn't see how reading a book could help him, the salesman suggested that he take the book home to his wife. He did so and Christian Science became a way of life for my mother.
She enrolled my sister and me in a Christian Science Sunday School, despite the well-meaning protests of family and friends. Two of our close relatives were ministers, and there were family meetings concerning my mother's "foolishness" and what to do about it. But my mother knew that what she had found was the spiritual truth of being, and she held firm, joining the church and becoming a class-taught student of Christian Science. I will always be grateful for the salesman who cared enough to offer Christian Science to his fellowman.
