Times of learning and spiritual growth

I was born and raised a Sikh, and my family was religious. In 1982, I moved from India to the United States to study. Soon after I graduated, I was sharing a house with three roommates. One of them subscribed to The Christian Science Monitor. I was drawn to the daily religious article and looked forward to reading it in every issue. In these articles I found ways to pray about everyday issues, such as finding a job, an apartment, companionship—all challenges I was dealing with at the time. 

At the bottom of each of the religious articles there was an advertisement for the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and also an invitation to readers to visit a Christian Science Reading Room, where copies of the book could be purchased. There was a Reading Room within walking distance of my house, and I started spending time there reading not only the textbook but also other Christian Science literature, such as The Christian Science Journal and Sentinel. I also started attending Wednesday testimony meetings at the local branch Church of Christ, Scientist. 

Through a new lens—our brilliance!
