Our biweekly series on how people have nurtured their public practice of Christian Science healing.
'THIS IS MY WORK!'
I was thirteen when I had a wonderful healing. It was just after the passing of a dearly loved relative, and I was deeply troubled and sad.
One lunchtime at school, I fell flat on my face, jumping over another pupil who was bent over for "leapfrog." Despite the bleeding from my hands, knees, and face, and feeling pain and shock, I repeated over and over to myself: "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." These wonderful truths from "the scientific statement of being" in Science and Health (see p. 468) filled my thoughts. Fear dissipated, and relief flooded over me as I felt the spiritual power implicit in this profound statement.
I was taken by ambulance to hospital, where a specialist pronounced that my nose was broken. He said I would need surgery to straighten it. They cleaned me up, and my parents came to be with me. My mother asked me if I'd like to have treatment from a Christian Science practitioner. My immediate answer was, Yes! Treatment began, and healing followed quickly without medical intervention.
