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

Finding fellowship

From the February 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal


After a very disagreeable relationship with a member of another Christian Science church, for years I avoided attending any joint church events such as lectures or meetings where I could possibly see this individual. I knew this was wrong, but didn’t make the effort to pray about it.
