"There was one love they could count on"

Who couldn't use more light? more clarity in a time of questioning? And if we are in the middle of our own search for light, it sometimes helps to hear the experiences of other "honest seekers for Truth." See Science and Health, p. This feature records experiences that may be useful to those who are looking for new answers. The accounts are anonymous in order to give authors the opportunity to talk freely about earlier life styles and attitudes that may have been considerably different from what they now value. Of necessity, the recounting of experiences telescopes the time frame, and does not attempt to tell a complete story. But the experiences do show something of the wide range of seekers and the way in which the light of Christ, Truth, restores, redirects, and regenerates lives.

In college I began questioning my religious beliefs and searching for a deeper spirituality. I was disillusioned with the religion I'd been raised in. I found that rituals didn't appeal to me. They seemed empty. There was a lot of symbolism but no solid basis for me. I knew that there was something more but had no idea what. I had always enjoyed the Bible. We'd study the Old Testament and the New Testament, and that I could take. It was the doctrine that I disagreed with. Or didn't understand.

God's mercies—"new every morning"!
