USHERING AT A CHRISTIAN SCIENCE LECTURE

Ushering at a Christian Science lecture is much more than simply directing people to available and satisfactory seats. Such ushering is a sacred, joyous, healing privilege, as well as an opportunity to be helpful, thoughtful, and patient.

We do not have many details in regard to the handling of the numbers of people who came to hear Christ Jesus teach. However, we can picture the disciples performing tasks which we today might call ushering. In the account in Luke's Gospel of the feeding of the five thousand, we read that the disciples were concerned about the multitude, desirous that they get lodging and food. Jesus apparently implied that caring for the people was part of their activity as disciples, for he said (9:13), "Give ye them to eat." The disciples reported that they had but five loaves and two fishes.
