Christian Science Testimony

         Eight years ago, when Christian Science was first presented to me, I was under the care of a medical specialist, suffering with a fatty tumor on my hand. Knowing of healings through Christian Science of cases similar to mine, I began to read the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Later on, another condition arose, — the grippe. A dear friend insisted that I get some help from a Christian Science practitioner. Personally I had never had any use for Christian Science practitioners; and I made the call on one very reluctantly, and filled with resentment. On my way home after the treatment, I found that my thought, which had seemed to be so full of fear and hate, was full of a love that I had never experienced before. And as this higher sense began to dawn in my consciousness and I entertained it, the tumor which had been on my hand for ten years disappeared overnight, and no sign of the grippe remained. Neither of these disorders has ever returned; and I am truly grateful for the healings.

         Each day Christian Science brings great blessings and spiritual joys into my life; and as I put into practice the truths I read in the textbook and the other writings of our revered Leader, I am able to comprehend better the words and works of Jesus the Christ as recorded in the Bible. Indeed, the Bible has become a very precious volume to me.

         My gratitude for contentment is unbounded; and "the peace of God, which passeth all understanding" is for me a present possibility.
