HEALED OF RINGWORM

With all the technological advances of the 20th century, it's tempting to wonder if now is a time to look to God only for spiritual comfort, rather than relying on Him for physical healing. Christian Science, though, takes an opposite view: that Christ's method of healing—relying on Jesus' proof and practice as a model—is as relevant today as his Sermon on the Mount.

A healing I had in high school helped me see this. Several teammates and I were on the wrestling team and contracted an unpleasant skin condition called ringworm. We were told we would not be allowed to compete until the condition receded. Though medical creams were recommended to us to heal this, I chose to look to God's care for me, instead. I prayed, on my own and with the prayerful support of a Christian Science practitioner, and earnestly read passages from the Bible along with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
