Of Good Report

Give, and it shall be given you

From the February 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The Church Financial situation looked bleak. At our first church meeting in a new city, my husband and I learned that almost half of the members had left because they wanted to build a new church. This meant that the remaining members were faced with half the donation income previously received.

The financial committee chair suggested ways the church could cut back on expenses. The need to cut back seemed logical; but to me, it seemed like a step backward. Before we made any budget cuts, I suggested we first set up a metaphysical committee to pray about these needs. The church board agreed and asked me to chair the committee. While I had never served on a metaphysical committee, our previous church had held successful metaphysical meetings, and I knew God would help us find a solution to our financial needs. 

My husband had been sent to this area by The Mother Church to be the Christian Science Minister for Armed Services Personnel, and so our move here felt like a God-directed step for us. I began looking for a God-given solution.
