Instant healing after a collision? Yes, really.
“Truth hit you harder than that car did.” That was a comment my friend made to me after a church meeting at my local Church of Christ, Scientist. He was referring to Truth’s allness—divine Love’s all-presence and power—and his comment deeply resonated with me. As I was thinking about it, another friend joyfully noted, “See, Norm, your thought was so full of God’s allness that not even a speeding car could knock you off your bike.”
Here’s what had happened: I had finished putting together readings from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook for the Wednesday evening testimony meeting at my church. Then I went out for a 25-mile bike ride and continued praying to better understand the nature of God’s omnipotence and omnipresence. About three miles into the ride, I was praying with the definition of God in the Glossary of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “The great I am; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence” (p. 587). I had been expanding my understanding of God as “the great I am,” considering each phrase in that definition and how it applied to my life and all of God’s creation.
