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

'We never fail to find listeners'

Early Christian Scientists do good works at prisons and penitentiaries across the United States.

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mary Baker Eddy directed her secretary Irving Tomlinson to work with local jails and prisons in New Hampshire, but he was by no means the only Christian Scientist to do so. Letters poured in from all over the country informing Eddy of the healing work being done in reform institutions.
