I was enrolled in a Christian Science Sunday School after my dad had been introduced to Christian Science and found the spiritual answers he had sought for several years. I truly value the firm foundation of spiritual understanding laid for me in the Sunday School. Church membership and Christian Science class instruction have greatly contributed to the many healings I have had. I would like to share just a few.
Through a desire to serve in a branch church, I was healed of extreme shyness and self-consciousness. In writing to a branch church, Mrs. Eddy once encouraged its members: "Forget self in laboring for mankind; then will you woo the weary wanderer to your door, win the pilgrim and stranger to your church, and find access to the heart of humanity" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 155). As I saw that the Church's mission requires us to serve mankind rather than self, I felt encouraged to strive for a better understanding of my own, and others', true, spiritual identity. We must see ourselves as God's spiritual reflection and put a mortal, personal sense of self out of the way. Gradually I was freed from self-consciousness and was able to be more active in church work and in my community. Later I could even speak before large audiences.
