A way to give back
Although I'd been raised as a Christian, I didn't really see Christianity as being practical. I had joined a mainline church, but I was also exploring all kinds of New Age theories and practices. It was during this time that I began to learn about Christian Science from a young couple I was working with in a musical production at my church.
Through the example of this loving couple, I became interested in learning more about their church. So my family and I began attending the local Church of Christ, Scientist, in State College, Pennsylvania. After about a year, though, I just wasn't sure that I really understood a lot of what Christian Science taught. I stopped attending, but continued to study Science and Health on my own. I had a number of healings of things such as flu, urinary tract infection, and injuries from an accident.
