"If I could just learn something of love as Jesus loved..."

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. xii. This column records some 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 lifestyles and attitudes that may have been considerably different from what they now value. Of necessity, the recounting of experiences is telescoped in its time frame, and these narratives do not attempt to tell a complete story. But they do show something of the wide range of seekers and the way in which the light of Christ, Truth, restores, redirects, and regenerates lives.

The circumstances in which individuals turn more wholeheartedly to God vary widely. In my own case, I had just returned from my doctor's office. He had told me that the symptoms of miscarriage I was suffering would most probably result in the loss of the baby—a child my husband and I deeply yearned for.
