CHURCH ALIVE

Legacy of Love

From the June 2008 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Last month two members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Pau (France), talked with me about the momentous journey that one man, Elie Taillefer, made a half century ago to their town in the southwest of France, and how that one journey turned into a life's work and finally into a legacy that continues vibrantly today. One of the members I talked with, Philippe Abadie, grew up in Paris, the son of Catholic parents, but his mother discovered Christian Science when he was a young boy.
