NESTLED IN GERMANY'S NORTHWESTERN CORNER, Oldenburg, a city of about 150,000, is home to our small—or should I say, steadily growing—Christian Science congregation.
But our small Christian Science Society has only recently experienced this growth and expansion. In fact, decades passed without a single person applying for membership. That is, until a year ago.
Feeling drained because of the decline in membership and low attendance at church services, we finally decided to call a meeting. Each member contributed metaphysical ideas on how to achieve our goal of reaching out more to the community. We started by endeavoring to see Church as a complete spiritual idea, not as a conglomeration of people.
