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

From the January 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal


A recent study of a “Church Alive” article from The Christian Science Journal (Lesley Pitts, “Mary Baker Eddy and the Living Church,” June 2011), and another from the Christian Science Sentinel (Michael R. Davis, “Church that embodies the healing Christ—today,” May 11, 2009), certainly enlivened my thinking.
