The call to commit

From the October 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Since I was raised in Christian Science and in the Sunday School, it felt natural to apply for Mother Church membership, which I did a year after I graduated from Sunday School at age 20. By then I had started living this religion and had prayed about issues regarding schoolwork, finding employment, and resolving relationship problems.
