Branching out

When burdens fade: A refreshed view of church work

From the June 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A Christian Science practitioner once told me that angel messages come with action; they are not just good thoughts, but involve results.

I had been devoting lots of my prayer time to thinking about church. Our church was going through some challenges. The building needed fixing, which was going to cost a lot of money. And in-person attendance at our services had shrunk following the pandemic, as more people continued to attend online services.

We reached out to The Mother Church for support. Someone from the Church Activities Department met with our members via Zoom and helped us regain our focus—healing. Our membership was inspired and uplifted but the challenges continued.
