When I Stopped Letting Age Define Me   Leave a comment

This article by Robert E J Wehman was published in the August 29, 2022 edition of the Christian Science Sentinel in the series How I Found Christian Science.

In my late teens, I wanted to learn to play the harp and hoped to become a professional harpist. But the head of the harp department at the local music conservatory told me I was too old to take up the study and make a career of it. 

Years later, after establishing myself in another arts-related career, I met a world-famous harpist in New York City. I told her that if I had met her when I was a child, I would have taken up the harp, and I shared the story of being denied the opportunity to study the harp because of my age. She immediately told me that if I stopped letting age define me, I would never again be too young or too old to do anything. And if I did this, she’d take me as a student. I agreed and commenced studying with her.

I found out later that this woman was a Christian Scientist. Her encouragement to stop letting age define me was my introduction to the practical truths taught in Christian Science.

In this article Robert tells how letting go of a concept of age opened up new avenues in his career and in his circumstances and led him to the study of Christian Science. Click here to read, or listen to, the full article.
