Editors' note: Most of the letters we print in our "Letters" column are brief That way we hare room to publish a wider range of views and helpful ideas. Sometimes, however, a longer letter carries the kind of healing message that deserves some extra space. This letter from a longtime Christian Scientist certainly falls into that category. We hope you 'II enjoy reading it as much as we did.
Our family was introduced to Christian Science in 1917 by my mother in a peculiar manner. A few years before, she went with a friend to visit a man who they both thought was a fortuneteller. He turned out to be a Christian Science practitioner. When they left his home he presented a copy of Science and Health to my mother, who when she arrived home, placed it in a small bookcase and forgot about it.
