Testimonies of Healing

Protected from contagion in the workplace

From the March 2020 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Early in my career, I worked in a small factory in a midsize town. During the middle of winter, many people in the factory began excitedly talking about flu season, and, predictably, that illness seemed to aggressively manifest itself.  

Many people were out sick with the flu, and those who remained at the factory nervously talked about whether or not they would be next. However, as the Christian Scientist in the facility, I had a very different response. 

The ninety-first Psalm tells us, “There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling,” provided we reside mentally in the “secret place of the most High” (verses 10, 1). According to the divine Science of Christ, sickness is not of God and therefore cannot oppose His power; and as His children, we have the God-given ability to demonstrate dominion over anything unlike God, who is good.
