Of Good Report

Fun and healing in church

From the September 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Back in our early twenties, my wife and I moved from Boston back to our native Albany, New York, area. We brought with us our young dog, Cannon—how we loved that dog! 

I hadn’t found employment yet, but a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, nearby had set aside funds to paint the exterior of their building. The members had not yet contracted with a painter to do this, and were happy to hire me, a new member of that church and former student in its Sunday School, to do the work for them.

A spirit of joyful delight doesn’t detract from the love and respect we feel for Church.
