God’s care proved in remote wilderness

Christian Science found me when I picked up a Sentinel in a laundromat in Bloomington, Indiana, in the mid-1960s. I had been searching for the God that is Love, after being told that God works in mysterious ways and we can’t know why He causes the death of a loved one. This was told to me after my young wife died shortly after childbirth. I could not accept a God who was capable of both good and evil, a God who would cause the death of my wife. What I read in the Sentinel offered the answers I had been seeking.

Staying up late after attending classes—I was a music major at Indiana University—in about three days and nights, I read the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I knew I had found a truly demonstrable religion. I joined the Christian Science organization at the university, and I was buoyed by some wonderful testimonies and new friendships. From there I went on to learn more about Christian Science and cultivate a deep trust in God.
