Little church, big prayers

From the June 2006 issue of The Christian Science Journal

WOULD ALL THE EFFORT that goes into the church service be worth it if only five people were here? An odd question to be asking myself, especially since, as First Reader, I was conducting the Wednesday evening testimony meeting at a large, well-attended church. Yet, as I stood there during a quiet period in the testimonies, the question persisted: Would you be willing to spend those hours praying about and preparing a church service if only a few people came? I was not sure I would.
