What do we Mean by "Church"?

A short time ago I was reading the definition of "Church" in Science and Health: "The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle" (p. 574). After reading it again and again, I thought: "What does that mean to me?" "What is a Church, or the church?"

In the building of a church, as in other structures, certain necessary steps are to be considered. First of these is the architect and his plans, then the location or site for the building. For our architect we have our infinite Creator—Divine Love—and His wonderful plan of life. In our own individual consciousness Truth finds the ground upon which it may build.
