Healing for a friend

Months before I joined The Mother Church and a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I gave up drinking wine. I saw that I could turn to God as my source of joy and vivacity in social settings instead of alcohol. I knew that I could fully depend on Spirit, not matter, for whatever I needed. While I was grateful for this healing, I never imagined that it would one day help a fellow artist and new acquaintance.

Several years later, while I was living in Italy as a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome, I was a dinner guest at the home of a new friend, an Italian photographer who loved to cook. For most Italians, food and wine are shared as a celebration of man’s cultivation of the earth. And so when I refused the wine, I risked insulting my host.
