Spiritual awakening heals injured foot

I first heard of Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science in an “alternative religions” class during my tenure in seminary. When I heard, “Spirit, God, gathers unformed thoughts into their proper channels, and unfolds these thoughts, even as He opens the petals of a holy purpose in order that the purpose may appear” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 506), I was lifted into an eternal moment. 

In the following years, I visited many Christian Science branch churches, and eventually took Primary class instruction. I began to realize that all my needs were being met by God’s divine grace. Many times I witnessed “impossible” things happen as Truth was revealed. One of these instances took place the day before Father’s Day several months ago.

Preparing for a family gathering, I was making notes while standing next to the separator wall that divides the kitchen and the den. The wall was topped with a heavy granite counter that hadn’t yet been fully installed, held to the top of the separator by strips of adhesive. The phone rang. My housemate said she would answer it and placed a thermos of water on the countertop, coming around the counter toward the phone. At the same time, I picked up the receiver, since I had been waiting for a call from a client. As I stepped away from the ledge to take the telephone, the granite top dislodged and fell.
