What's really 'going around'?

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

My first physical healing in Christian Science occurred while I was still a student in the Christian Science Sunday School, and it related to defending myself prayerfully against illness.

At the beginning of one Christmas season I had been hired to work as extra help in a major department store. The work was prefaced by a day of training to learn the company’s procedures. I was thrilled to have this opportunity and was full of joy! However, shortly after I arrived for the training, I began to feel ill with flu symptoms. I had a childlike trust that the Father-Mother God I was being taught of in Sunday School was present with me as well as with the other employees. So I tried to keep my thoughts still and pray.

I was seeing some proof that the spiritual truths I’d been taught could actually be demonstrated.
