Brought back to the truth

I had been happily teaching in a primary school for several years when the school went through a period of great change, which created major challenges for the staff. It was a time of great stress. In the face of what seemed to be wrongdoing by others, it felt right to resign, though I stayed until the end of the school year.

My study of Christian Science had been somewhat perfunctory at this point because of the busyness of life, but this crisis brought me right back to the truth, as I knew Christian Science to be. There were other challenges going on in my life, and I found it difficult to function. I felt I had reached a very low point. However, I took comfort in what Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Trials are proofs of God’s care. Spiritual development germinates not from seed sown in the soil of material hopes, but when these decay, Love propagates anew the higher joys of Spirit, which have no taint of earth” (p. 66).
