ATTENDING CHURCH

The phrase "attending church," meaning the presence of an individual in the religious congregation of his choice, is so generally accepted that the student of Christian Science needs to be clear in his understanding as to what it means for him to attend church. Perhaps he comes to Christian Science from a denomination where church attendance has meant his listening to a sermon which he has never heard before, instead of listening, as in a Church of Christ, Scientist, to the reading of a Lesson-Sermon which he has had the opportunity of studying during the preceding week from the Christian Science Quarterly.

The message in the latter case is not new in the sense of his hearing it for the first time. But the inspiration which he has gained from its study and application, with resulting demonstrations, has opened his understanding to new and higher meanings, and since Truth is ever unfolding its divine, infinite nature, yet more inspiration is gained when he hears this reading from the pulpit.
