A CONTINUING SERIES ON HOW CHURCH IS ACTIVE IN PEOPLE'S LIVES

CHURCH LIVES

A heart for the community

I was raised in a Christian Science home, where we had many healings through prayer.

I also observed my parents' participation in church activities. To me as a child, it seemed very time-consuming, and sometimes stressful. I remember one time my mom coming home from a church meeting in tears. Though I eagerly, and of my own accord, became a member of The Mother Church—The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston—when I was a teenager, I was not so enthusiastic about becoming a member of one of its branches.
