A place of belonging, a healing ministry

Unemployed, homeless, and devoid of religious views, I was turning toward God only because I was searching for something to take me out of my misery. Everything else had failed.

One night, I saw a window display with Christian Science literature and an address for the local Reading Room. The next morning, I went to this Reading Room and poured out my heart to the attendant. She told me that God loved me and that my real job was to express Him. She let me borrow a copy of a book called Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Immediately, I started reading it, and although I didn't understand much of it, I carried on because I wanted to learn how I could receive the blessings promised in the first sentence of its preface: "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings" (p. vii).
