Employment found

In 1943 I went to a Christian Science Reading Room to read and to pray. I needed a better job in order to care for my wife and child, but I had only an eighth-grade education. Within a short time I was asked to work for a newspaper as an advertising salesman. I hesitated at first, but then I thought of these words from Science and Health: "Mind is not necessarily dependent upon educational processes. It possesses of itself all beauty and poetry, and the power of expressing them" (p. 89).

I knew the job opportunity was provided for me by God, and thirty years later, in 1974, I retired from the newspaper that had hired me.
