Letters & Conversations


From the May 2004 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I want to thank you for the photograph on the front of the March issue. It shows an Afghan woman driving an asphalt roller to pave a street in Kabul. The Turkish Muslim cleaning lady at my office was really drawn to it. Since she doesn't know any English, I told her what the photo was all about from the description given on page 2. She was so touched by the story. She drew a circle with her finger around the woman's partially covered face, and we shared a silent moment of sadness at the plight of the woman. She started leafing through the magazine. She was so interested in the pictures—that was the only thing she could relate to. I told her short stories about each picture we came to.

Then we picked up the February issue. When we came to the photo on page 17, I recalled that the accompanying article told of a boy who had been healed through prayer after a very serious skiing accident. When I briefly related it to her, she stared for a moment in amazement. Then she said, "You know, I believe that prayer can heal. After all, it is God that has made us."
