"I explained to her that as God's child, she is a shining light that no amount of darkness could contaminate or extinguish."
I read the article "Our daughter's safe passage through the aftermath of kidnap and rape" (May 3, 1999) and was moved to tears. That same evening I received a call from the police station to say a dear friend had been raped by two men and was at the station, too distraught to speak. We spent the next few hours going through the necessary police and medical procedures. I kept hanging on to what I had read in that Sentinel. After I had put her to bed, she could not stop weeping and reliving the horror. She is not a Christian Scientist, but loves the hymns. After I read several hymns to her, she went into a deep and natural sleep.
I am so grateful for the truths taught in Christian Science, which are always available in any emergency to help and heal. My friend has had the medical and emotional support she wanted, and it is wonderful to see her daily progress. I explained to her that as God's child, she is a shining light that no amount of darkness could contaminate or extinguish.
