Keep the doors open

From the March 2020 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In an age when most church congregations across denominations are reportedly dwindling, my wife and I were grateful to find a Christian Science church open for a Sunday service during a recent trip to Illinois from our hometown in Texas. While talking to two church members in Illinois who belong to different branches of The Mother Church—The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston—I thanked them sincerely for their service and for keeping the doors open despite their relatively small congregations.
