Away from home?
This is a column in which readers of the Sentinel tell us how Christian Science came into their lives.
Living away from home for the first time can be quite an adventure! It may give you a new feeling of freedom to realize you can make certain decisions without consulting anyone beforehand. But being on your own can also have its challenges, as I discovered.
I left my parents' home when my job required me to move to a different part of the country. It seemed as though a person had to be born in that part of the country to be accepted. I felt dreadfully lonely and homesick. About this time, a distant friend introduced me to Christian Science by giving me a copy of Miscellaneous Writings by Mary Baker Eddy, which I found very interesting. That led me to a Christian Science Reading Room to borrow the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, also by Mrs. Eddy. Eventually I bought my own copy. Because of it, I began to see many things in a new way.
