When a close family member was hospitalized

From the May 11, 2020 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


For many years I have been the only Christian Scientist in my extended family, so I have spent many an hour in hospital waiting rooms and accompanying family members and friends to their medical appointments.   Early on, I learned to highlight in my thought the loving motives of everyone involved, including medical staff, even when fearful or sad predictions, and even hopelessness, seemed to predominate in their words and actions.
