Learning about healing in Christian Science was an important part of my Sunday School years. With the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, as study guides, we students were taught how to pray, and that we would find the answer to every problem by turning to God.
A healing that continues to mean much to me happened when I was in college and attending a three-day meeting for Christian Science college organizations at The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston. Students from all over the world were there. It was an impressive gathering that awakened in me a deeper love for God and man, and a resolve to be more God-centered.
The first day of this meeting, I woke up with a severe headache. I had had such headaches in the past. “Oh no!” I thought. I’d so looked forward to this event, and now I was feeling so ill I didn’t know if I would be able to attend. But knowing that God’s love was ever present to care for and sustain me, I determined I would and could go.
