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

Church: are we really there?

From the June 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I love attending my branch church in Nigeria. There is such a warm, palpable sense of fellowship, and always a vibrant expectation of witnessing another’s spiritual progress through a testimony of healing, or of hearing an acknowledgment of God’s goodness.
