Skiing injury healed

Some 20 years ago, I went skiing in the mountains with a good friend. We had a great time together enjoying the deep, powdery snow, and I had the opportunity to develop some skiing skills. On one run down the slopes, however, I took a turn a little too hard and fell, injuring my leg. There was visible evidence of a break of some sort beneath the skin. My friend, who was also a Christian Scientist, helped me off the slopes and into the car. He drove me home and helped me into my apartment. 

I recall doing some praying about this situation. But what I remember most is the notion that it was something that might get better on its own with rest. Admittedly, I hoped that I could just think a few good thoughts, and it would all be better in the morning. Fortunately, I learned from this experience that simply “thinking good thoughts” is not what Christian Science is about. And while positive thinking is better than negative thinking, it doesn’t take into account the spiritual understanding and growth that goes on in Christian Science healing.

We'd love to hear from you!
