The village in which I grew up was a typical northern English village. One day as I was helping Mother to wash the dishes, we looked through the kitchen window and noticed a neighbor drunkenly weaving his way home. His wife had recently passed on, and he seemed lost.

Some weeks later we saw him again, and my mother told me he had a new housekeeper, one of the Christian Scientists we'd been hearing a lot about. Several weeks later I met this neighbor face to face; I stood in amazement, for his face seemed to shine and he spoke happily to me. I did not know what the words profound impression meant then, but I saw the difference!
