ANYONE CAN BE A HEALER

AN UNAVOIDABLE PRACTICE

MY GRANDFATHER, eyes closed, was sitting in his chair in a small, too warm, turn-of-the-century apartment in Ohio. He held a piece of paper in one hand. As any preschooler might, I wanted to know what he was doing, since he was being so quiet. He said he was praying for the people on the list—people who had asked him for help with scientific healing prayer. His thumb stopped at each name as he prayed in silent earnest.

This was my first impression of healing through prayer in the public practice of Christian Science.
