CHURCH The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle. The Church is that institution, which affords proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine Science, thereby casting out devils, or error, and healing the sick. —Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures

Christmas in August II

From the December 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I Am Christian Science Nurse, and I traveled to Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo with the TMC Youth team for the recent Summits.

One of our group, a Christian Science practitioner, was really interested in visiting an orphanage. I was interested in visiting, too.

We had three Christian Science practitioners, a group of local Christian Scientists from Boma and Kinshasa who knew the place, and me, in our group.
