Stomach Ache and School Anxiety healed

By Omid – Sunday School student in Austin TX.

About 2 weeks ago my stomach started to hurt. It was a very intense feeling and didn’t allow me to do anything. That weekend that it happened was super important to me because finals was that week. The whole entire Sunday I didn’t study anything because I could barely move without my stomach hurting.
My mom convinced me to call a practitioner and get help. So I called a practitioner that is very close to me and she helped me understand what might be making me feel this way. I told her everything that was happening to me and one of them was that if I didn’t pass my Language Arts final I would go to summer school or get HELD BACK!!!
She helped me know that I was in God’s hands and that God didn’t make mistakes and bad grades.  After that, I told myself not to worry and to just do your best.  My stomach stopped hurting me. That week not only did I pass my Language Arts class, I got amazing grades on all my other finals.
Thank you so much for reading this and helping me express my gratitude for Christian Science.

ANNUAL MEETING OF THE MOTHER CHURCH – in the Reading Room Monday, June 2 at noon


Dear Fellow Members and Friends,

You are warmly invited to join the Christian Science Board of Directors, President of The Mother Church, Treasurer, and Manager of the Committees on Publication as well as other speakers at Annual Meeting 2014. The meeting will be live webcast online only on Monday, June 2, at 1 p.m. EDT (check the local time at Time Zone Converter). You will find more information at christianscience.com/annualmeeting.

The conversation will be about healing. As we get ready for this meeting of our church family, let’s consider this statement of Mrs. Eddy’s: “Jesus established his church and maintained his mission on a spiritual foundation of Christ-healing.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 136). The Board also invites you to join with them in the study of her article ˜Choose Ye” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, pp.3-6) and ponder its message.

As we gain a better understanding of Christ-healing and what it requires of us, we will more fully demonstrate the true, healing substance of Church. What a blessing for us, our Church, and the world!

The meeting will include updates and reports. The replay will be available within 24 hours. Versions in French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish will be ready no later than June 10.

With appreciation for your support of our Mother Church,

Lyle Young
Clerk of The Mother Church
