The congregation

From the November 1987 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The 5000 fed, the Pentecostal hundreds, the 70 sent— were they so much greater than the twelve appointed, the friends at the cross, the one or two at the resurrection? The few who have come today will always seem small compared to those who could have come. But the command is to pray for these few, to so love the Christ, which has called us together, that we understand why in the middle of this mighty congregation numbers don't count.
