Why I share the Comforter

I was introduced to Christian Science at an early age and attended a Christian Science Sunday School until I was in my late teens. In Sunday School, we were taught that God is a loving God who does not cause or send any ills, and that anyone can turn to God as “a very present help in trouble” (Psalms 46:1). I experienced physical healings, often with the help of a Christian Science practitioner, someone who is available to call on for treatment through prayer and whose healing work is based in Christian love and in understanding the teachings of Christian Science. 

After high school, I drifted away from attending Sunday School and church and lived a lifestyle more in line with that of the prodigal son in his “riotous living” days (see Luke 15:11–32). But over the years, when things became dark and fearful for me, just as they did for the prodigal, I still believed I could pray for God’s help, and I did. Through this prayer, it became apparent to me that I needed a religion that would set me on some kind of path to a more satisfying way of life.
