A Christian Science lecture set me on a new path

In the early 1970s I was living in London and trying to fill a sense of emptiness with food, but the problem had nothing to do with physical hunger. Back then, I didn’t recognize the hunger for what it was—a spiritual yearning to feel God’s control and presence in my life. 

At one dark point during this time, I wandered into a Christian Science Reading Room to ask to use their telephone. Although I had no idea what Christian Science was, or the purpose of a Reading Room, I had felt drawn to this shopfront and was grateful the attendant let me make my phone call. Despite the passage of decades, I still remember his kindness in helping a stranger who showed no interest in what a Reading Room really had to offer beyond its telephone.
