Practicing what I learned in class

Shortly after having Primary class instruction in Christian Science, I visited a friend for lunch. Her little boy had been suffering with diarrhea. The doctor had prescribed medicine and greatly restricted his diet. He had eaten very little for days. As we chatted, she sat rocking her pale and listless child to sleep. Her love and concern for him was moving. 

I couldn’t pray for him, as he was on medication—which I had learned is incompatible with Christian Science treatment—and I hadn’t been asked to help him. I soon realized, however, as I listened to my friend describing his condition, that, as I’d learned in class instruction, I absolutely couldn’t accept this picture as real. Silently, as we talked, I denied the belief of sickness.
