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

An 'unprejudiced mind' touched by a lecture

From the November 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This piece has been adapted from a comment posted on

When First Church of Christ, Scientist, Laguna Niguel, California, decided to give a Christian
Science lecture, they chose to ask members to bring someone they knew to the lecture rather than launching into a big advertising campaign. 

In the lecture preparatory meeting, the lecturer spoke about how to talk to others about Christian Science and encouraged members to do that more often. 

Sometimes people actually want to know more about Christian Science, but members’ reluctance to talk about it often keeps those people from discovering more about it.
