CHURCH ALIVE

Church Rekindled

From the August 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal


LATE ON A WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON in Oslo, Norway, with the promise of flowers breaking the gray shadows of winter, four Norwegian members of The Mother Church had come to Oslo to meet with three representatives of The Christian Science Publishing Society—Leide Lessa, managing editor of The Herald of Christian Science, Irmela Wigger, a Christian Science practitioner and teacher from Hamburg, Germany, and myself—to discuss a new publishing strategy and the future of the Norwegian Herald. We met in a small hotel meeting room because a year earlier members had closed the church in Oslo, sold the building, and disbanded as a Christian Science Society.
