The question I asked at a Wednesday testimony meeting …

- Practice, Practice, Practice

About five years ago I was sitting in a Wednesday evening testimony meeting in our Christian Science branch church. The First Reader had just finished sharing inspired readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, and it was time for us to share testimonies of healing in our lives. There was silence. No one spoke. 

In that silence, a thought came to me: “Does Christian Science really heal?” I sat there in shock, wondering why this doubt came to me. Then another thought came to me, “Why don’t you silently list every healing that you have witnessed in your life through the application of its divine laws?” 

So, I did. I started silently listing them. I kept going.
