  1. Recently, on July 11, a man I have hired to help me paint the outside of my new/old house cleaned a tangled mass of various vines off a large shed in my jungle-like backyard. I gathered a few wheelbarrow loads with my bare arms and hands and took them to the front yard for city pickup. There was no evidence of a poison ivy vine in this debris. A week previous, this individual had encountered poison ivy while helping a friend clear a field. He seemed to be covered with a rash and with a pink substance he was using to cure it. He expressed concern over a certain vine on the shed that I could assure him was not poison ivy but Virginia creeper. On July 14, he noticed that the underside of one of my arms was affected. (I know that seeming condition was only the manifestation of latent fear in my own thought.) I had the opportunity to explain to him how I was handling this suggestion through Christian Science, which he had never heard of. He listened politely but told me laughingly at the end of the day that he was going to go home and put more lotion on this "mental condition." This morning, July 23, he asked me if I had medical health insurance. I told him I did not. He immediately asked to see my "poison." I showed him an almost completely clear arm and told him that there had been no sensation for at least a week. He could see that just a few inactive brown marks remained. He said his was going away, too. Although he had been skeptical of my use of spiritual means for healing, this morning he appeared to accept the evidence that my method was effective. I didn't think it was necessary to point out to him that my approach was also much quicker. I was very grateful for a JSH/ONLINE article on the healing of poison ivy that ran during this time of need, and I am also grateful for the opportunity to bear witness to the healing power of Christian Science. As a woman seemingly in her early seventies, I am also bearing witness to the dominion this way of life provides as I keep up with the much younger men who are helping me restore this house.

  2. So enjoyed Judy's readings today and having the team in place, though Norm always shines. I am feeling a bit guilty for giving another testimony so close to the one I sent in today but as I relaxed on my sofa and got close to God I realized the healing taking place as we sang and as Judy read. I felt so embraced in Love's arms. Though I always begin the day with God and studying our weekly Bible lesson before beginning my day, acknowledging God as All and in all, the past few days have been a bit difficult as my one leg did not want to work as it is designed to do and was not without discomfort. I had been praying to know that man is God's very and loved expression. That I was not guilty of a thing, that there was no reality to matter,or in matter and that the feet and legs designed to hold and support man, were spiritual ideas, only expressing Good. I have experienced many hearings and I am always awe struck, as it so proves God's loving presence. After the service ended and I started working on some home projects I realized I was completely free from pain and moved with ease. I know to protect this healing by declaring that man is not a material subject, but the divine idea of God; always expressing goodness, love, perfection and can never be separated from the Creator, whose is perfect, expressed as man. I can only praise Him for his love and goodness and give thanks for Christian Science as it is key to the Scriptures that bring healing to our thought. Through her love for God and Christ Jesus, Mary Baker Eddy has presented the world God's Truth so we are able to go about our Father's business healing sickness and sin and overcoming death. Thanks Boston team for always being there. Your prayerful work is felt throughout the world and especially in my home.

  3. I have to give immense gratitude for these services as they had a healing effect on me a few weeks ago. I had developed a large bump on the back of my head and it was very painful. To be honest, I had made small attempts at prayer, but wasn't able to get past the fear that seemed to be a mountain in my path. After much discussion with my husband, I elected to get help from an Urgent Care. After their work, the bump was greatly reduced in size. They told me I would need surgery to remove the problem and that it would likely fill back in. The next morning, it had returned to the size it had been the morning before. I was greatly frustrated. After a short time, rather than focusing on the problem, I saw clearly that this was my opportunity to learn more about God and in turn, myself. I felt guilty at first for not being able to overcome the fear, but that faded as I kept my focus on learning about God. I turned on my computer to look up JSHOnline and realized it was Thursday morning, meaning I could tune in to the replay of the Wednesday service! I was elated and could not take enough notes through the service as I felt like the entire hour was God talking directly and powerfully to me. That was the turning point. From there, I made time to study and by night and day, at every chance, I worked closely with God's Law of Adjustment by Adam Dickey. I knew that God's Law of Adjustment was truly in action here and I could release any history of events or fear of it at all! I noticed right away that the bump was reducing in size and pain. After a few days, not only was the bump gone, but there was no evidence whatsoever. I have learned that God is always present, always with me and that it is certainly never too late to turn to Him. I am deeply grateful.
