Church as a conversation

From the July 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal


As I was sitting in a Wednesday evening testimony meeting at my local Christian Science church recently, I wondered, “What if church was thought of as a conversation?” The readings and the testimonies shared, along with the silent spaces in between, are not unlike a conversation among loving friends. But being at church that evening felt like a deeper, more meaningful conversation—the kind where we are reminded that the most important dialogue is the one between God and us.
