For the past few years, I have served as a volunteer in the Foster Grandparents program at a local elementary school. I greatly enjoy my role as one-on-one reading coach and art mentor. However, a couple of years ago, I noticed I was asking the children to speak louder because I often couldn’t hear them. Even though I’d done my own consistent prayer and worked with a Christian Science practitioner, a progressive hearing loss that I’d had for several years was becoming more disturbing. I found being in the same room with lots of noisy kids more and more frustrating, and I realized that if my hearing continued to grow worse, I wouldn’t be able to continue volunteering in either reading or art. This added to my feelings of fear and distress because I loved being with the children.
One day I called a practitioner for support, and we talked about Soul (which is another name for God) as the source of sight and hearing. She pointed out that in reality man’s senses are spiritual and untouched by age, time, or material processes. She suggested I study what Mary Baker Eddy says about the senses on pages 212 and 213 of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. I did, and this gave me a clearer understanding that everything good, everything God created, is invulnerable and intact. I felt new energy from this fresh glimpse of reality.
