Being in a ‘ready position’ at church

From the October 2019 issue of The Christian Science Journal


I ask myself the following questions from time to time: What are my expectations for church? How am I viewing the activity of my local branch Church of Christ, Scientist? Am I in my “ready position” at church?  What is a “ready position,” exactly? In volleyball, it is a stance where the players are attentively focused on the player serving the ball and ready to jump or lunge as soon as the ball is in motion. In this fast-paced sport, it’s necessary to be ready to act in a split second.
