Church Alive

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

On church growth...

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I’d like to comment  on church growth/decline, as someone who is very active in a Christian Science branch church with a small congregation. I think the signs of growth are everywhere, if we look in the right places.
