SPINAL DISEASE HEALED
When I first heard of Christian Science, seven years
ago, I supposed that it was some old fad under a new
name. In the little Texas town where we then lived
there were two or three Christian Scientists who met
at the home of one of their number to read the
Lesson-Sermon. Meeting one of them one day, I asked if unbelievers
could come to their meetings. She said that
they could if they wanted to. I went, expecting them
to do something that I could laugh at when telling my
friends about it. How surprised I was to find out that
they didn't do anything but read the Bible and another
book which they called Science and Health. I still
thought it all foolishness, but resolved to go to their meetings
until I found out all they believed. I continued to
go until I began to understand a little of what they knew,
not what they believed; and instead of spending my
time telling others what a silly thing Christian Science
is, I am now trying to find words to tell what a great
and wonderful thing it is. I have been healed of so-called
incurable spinal disease of ten years' standing
by studying the Bible and Science and Health. Science
and Health has been my only teacher, and I wish to send
my thanks to our dear Leader.
There are no other Scientists near where we now live,
but I have the Quarterly and study the lessons by myself.
I have five small children, and Christian Science is invaluable
to me in controlling them, and in overcoming
their common ills. They often help themselves and
each other to destroy their little hurts and fears. - Mrs.
