Grace: more than a virtue—a healing force

Christian Science came to my attention and made a strong impression just as I was approaching that threshold when a number of new experiences and experimentations sometimes weigh heavily on a young adult. At the same time I had a teacher in high school who had worked in Washington, D.C. Her interest in public affairs was contagious and I caught her enthusiasm.

The combination of a new spiritual outlook and an interest in the world held my attention so strongly that the possibly harmful experimentations of young adult years didn't affect me as they did some of my friends. I realize my behavior wasn't so much a question of personal virtue as it was something of grace—a grace that had much to do with that teacher's love of her work and with other good people and with challenges that had come earlier in my life and which directed my interests and hopes.
