Keep it simple
I left the Christian Science practitioner’s office with this statement ringing in my ears: “Christian Science is simple.” I knew that she meant that Christian Science is straightforward to understand and to practice. As a newcomer to this Science, I was eager to learn more and to demonstrate it.
I’d first found out about Christian Science healing when I was in college, a thousand miles away from home. I received a letter from my dad telling of his wonderful healing of abdominal, back, and leg pain after reading Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (see Stanley A. Smith, The Christian Science Journal, July 1961). Then, after I was married and had a family, I became overwhelmed with fear of disease and death. It would be no stretch to say that I was overwhelmed every second of every day. A friend who was a Christian Scientist, in whom I had confided, suggested that I visit a Christian Science practitioner.
