Shortly after my son was born (several decades ago now), I was taking him for a ride in his stroller. The ground was very rough on a short stretch of the path, so I picked up the stroller and carried it. Suddenly I felt a snap in my lower abdomen near the groin, and a lump appeared.
Because another family member had a similar condition for years, I believed, without formal diagnosis, that this was a hernia. I had begun reading Science and Health at that time, but had yet to begin to study Christian Science seriously. The hernia did not cause me pain, but it was often obvious to me, and I prayed about it only on occasion for a number of years.
About two years ago, our church sponsored a talk on forgiveness. I was chairing the planning committee, and we thought quite a bit about the concept of forgiveness and its place in our own lives. People gave many testimonies at church services about the healing power of forgiveness before the speaker ever arrived in town. About 100 people attended the talk—about a third of them newcomers to our church. We felt this was a very successful talk.
