The success is in the sharing

Some of us have been invited to a potluck dinner where everyone is asked to bring a dish to share. And we've always been well satisfied afterward, partly because of the good cooking and also because we've come away with something to use later—a good recipe, for instance. The success of the potluck is in the sharing. But it wouldn't be much of a potluck if no one brought anything.

In a sense, isn't this what the Wednesday evening testimony meeting is all about—sharing? Isn't it a kind of spiritual feast that all of us can contribute to and take part in? A potluck dinner feeds and satisfies us for just a short time, whereas the Wednesday evening meeting gives us spiritual bread that feeds us forever. Think if each of us, each Wednesday evening, brought news of a healing, or a unique insight we had had during the week in our daily study of the Lesson-Sermon In the Christian Science Quarterly . or through individual research. Think of the feast we could have! But, like the potluck dinner, it wouldn't be much of a feast if we didn't bring something, would it?
