"We all must learn that Life is God"...

From the December 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal

"We all must learn that Life is God" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 496). When I was involved in a severe automobile accident on the highway and I was almost unconscious, I could hear my own voice affirming over and over: "Life is God. God is the only Life." When I felt I could not draw another breath because of the intense pain and pressure, the Word of Life sustained me. I could not open my eyes, and therefore it was impossible to see the evidence of the accident or the person at the wheel of the car that had run into me.

Very shortly the state troopers arrived and I was moved to a nearby hospital, where I asked the attendants to telephone a Christian Science practitioner in a distant city and a Christian Science friend who lived in the area. The latter came and was able to remain constantly at my side and work closely with the practitioner.

At no time did I feel resentment toward the other driver. When I was told later that he had been intoxicated, I continued to acknowledge only the perfect man, the expression of God, Spirit, and rejected the belief that man is a mortal to be condemned and despised.
