Removing mental roadblocks

Malcolm Drummond
Back in my 20s I honestly did not think I needed Christian Science class instruction for three reasons. 

First, I found healings in Christian Science came to me easily and quickly. Second, I was not particularly impressed by the way some members behaved who called themselves “class-taught students,” and third, I was told that “class instruction” was really for those who considered themselves ready to enter into the full-time practice of Christian Science. These were my three big roadblocks.

It wasn’t until after I moved to America from England, got happily married, and then found my wife attending an association meeting of the Christian Science teacher of her choice, that I realized I was missing something very special.
