Finding ‘something good’

During the years of World War II, I was living in Brisbane, Australia. I remember first hearing the words “Christian Science” when I caught a radio program that was announced as coming from the newsroom of The Christian Science Monitor and sponsored by the Christian Science Reading Room. “The Monitor Views the News” came on the hour of, I think, ten in the morning. As I listened, a tiny spark told me, “This is something good.”                                 

Several years later the war was finally over, and a cousin asked me to be a bridesmaid at his wedding. Dress fittings entailed tram trips from one side of Brisbane to the other. My destination was past the end of the tram line, so I walked the rest of the way; my route took me past the local Christian Science Reading Room. “Ah!” I thought, “Christian Science. That is that ‘something good’ from the radio news program.”
