'WHAT I'M MOST GRATEFUL FOR IS THAT TRUTH EXISTS'

Although I had very caring parents, I remember even as a young child having the unsettling feeling that life was uncertain. I went to a Protestant Sunday School, but I was content to stop going when my mother no longer wished to attend the church. I longed to believe there was a God whom I could trust, and sometimes I tried earnestly to talk to Him: "If You're really there, could You please show me something that makes sense?" In retrospect, I see that was a kind of prayer.

My mother eventually asked my piano teacher, a Christian Scientist, if she knew anything that could help with her own severe health problems. My mom told me some of what she had learned from my teacher, and asked if I wanted to visit a Christian Science Sunday School while she attended the church service. It was the first time I had heard ideas about God that seemed both reasonable and comforting, so I readily agreed.
