A life-launching experience

When I was in my early adulthood, I was casually reading a pamphlet I had purchased from our local Christian Science Reading Room. In it was an article that seemed to speak directly to me. I took it as a personal call to arms, and it launched me into becoming a serious student of Christian Science. I read and reread the article dozens of times, though I never noticed the author’s name. It was clearly printed on the article, but it was as if it were hidden from my view. 

Within the next year or so, I began to think about my next step in Christian Science: Primary class instruction. I had moved to a new, large city and had met a young Christian Science practitioner who had helped me in prayer successfully several times. We became friends and had many wonderful, invigorating conversations. My landlady at the time, also a Christian Scientist, told me that my new friend was a Christian Science teacher. It felt so natural to explore the idea of taking class instruction with him, and before long I applied and was accepted into his class the following summer.
