Family freed from contagion
As the COVID-19 crisis deepened, I turned to Mary Baker Eddy’s short article titled “Contagion” (see Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, pp. 228–229) for insight and inspiration. A number of years ago I read that article almost every day for over a year. I share this testimony in the hope that it will help others.
When my daughter started preschool, she and my husband brought home every contagious ailment that was going around and unwittingly shared them with her little brother and me. We toppled like dominoes. I was dismayed at what seemed an enormous challenge.
I had grown up in a Christian Scientist family with four kids, and I could not remember contagion ever being a problem. It now dawned on me that the freedom from contagion I had experienced as a child had been the outcome of my parents’ prayers, and that now my own family needed to demonstrate our God-given freedom.
