For those who have been trying to get rid of a problem for a long time, it sometimes becomes necessary to ward off frustration and impatience. The Christian Science Sentinel magazine, recently published one of my articles - "How long will this take?" - which shows a way out of the exasperation and annoyance that can crop up if a problem has hung around a bit too long.
Here is a sneak peek: "I had a long-standing relationship problem during which I worked with a number of Christian Science practitioners to resolve the problem through prayer for a number of years. Then one day, when my thought was occupied elsewhere, the healing came. I was mad. Why now? Why was this healed on a day I had been praying about something else (in fact, praying for someone else)? Why hadn’t my first prayers been enough?..."
If your interest is peaked and you would like to know why, read How long will this take? in the January 13-20, 2014 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel.

It was my turn to drive when a friend and I were passing through a high hilly area on a road trip in Great Britain. Let me set the scene: I was a new driver, driving on the left side (that is the wrong side of the road for an American), on what could only be considered a one lane passage way with a sheer drop-off to nowhere and no shoulder in this section for pulling over. Rounding a blind curve, probably driving too fast for the road conditions, we were confronted with a flock of sheep crossing the road and a large truck barreling head on towards us. There was nowhere to go and no way to stop to avoid a collision...
I have practiced Christian Science professionally in
some form since 1979.
But my journey with
Christian Science started
in a Sunday school
where as a young child
I was taught the Scriptures and some simple basics
of Jesus' method of
scientific Christian healing.
A significant experience
at the age of twelve
opened my eyes to
the great potential
of this practice.
After impaling my foot
