When my dad died at age 46, I decided that God wasn’t worth much. How could I love God whom I didn’t trust, who let such an awful thing happen?

I was not a Christian Scientist at that time. I was living in England, and by a very happy circumstance, I met a Christian Science Minister for Armed Services Personnel. He gave me a Christian Science Quarterly. I already owned copies of the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy. But I didn’t read either of them. He gently encouraged me to begin studying these books and then answered some of my hard questions.
