Uniting with Church

From the October 1993 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Have you been thinking that the church you attend isn't what you want it or expect it to be? Maybe you think it's dull or restrictive, something uninspiring. If what you're thinking about Church is unattractive, if it's something you don't care to unite with, consider the significance of seeing Church from a different standpoint.

The Church founded by Mary Baker Eddy, a Church based on divine Love, can't really contribute anything less than healing to one's life. It isn't dull or restrictive; it's freeing. Mrs. Eddy says: "Our church is built on the divine Principle, Love. We can unite with this church only as we are new-born of Spirit, as we reach the Life which is Truth and the Truth which is Life by bringing forth the fruits of Love,—casting out error and healing the sick." Science and Health, p. 35.

This view of Church challenges material appearances and human opinions at the deepest level. It identifies the high purpose of Church to be Christian healing, and those who practice and experience something of this healing in their lives can—and do—unite with it.
