CHURCH ALIVE

A Church Prays About Vandalism

From the November 2007 issue of The Christian Science Journal


WHAT HAPPENS when a church's membership prays about an act of vandalism to their church building? Last spring, First Church of Christ, Scientist, Eugene, Oregon, had the opportunity to put the power of prayer into action when their church and the Episcopal church next door were vandalized. Three church members, Cindy Clague , Diane Page , and James Shepherd , got together to tell the Journal how their church membership dealt with the blow of vandalism of their building.
