CHURCH ALIVE

The Final Word: Life with a Capital L

From the April 2010 issue of The Christian Science Journal


WHEN OUR DEAR CHURCH MEMBER and friend, former Christian Science Monitor reporter George Merry, passed on last summer, his sister asked if his memorial service could be held at our church. Our members felt that holding this service was the most natural thing in the world, especially since George had grown up in our church (Third Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston), had been a member for over 50 years, and as a public figure had many friends in the community.
