The following was written in support of Church Alive, a focus of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, that explores the meaning and possibilities of awakening to the spiritual basis and impact of Church. 

Your questions about Church


Love is attractive! Or as Mary Baker Eddy says, “. . . Love is reflected in love” (Science and Health, p. 17).

To me the crux of Sunday School and teaching is the sharing of love. If you’re truly engaged with the Christian Science Bible Lesson—I mean really into it—and if you truly understand that Christian Science is the divine Comforter, that is going to come across. It doesn’t matter how you teach—whether you’re using video to get a conversation started, or if you’re simply working with the Bible and Science and Health. It’s this hearts-on-fire love for God and Science which will teach and enliven your students. More than that, this love will attract others. For one thing, students will be so inspired about Sunday School they’ll start inviting their buddies to come with them. People walking by your church will be inexplicably drawn to come check it out.

We'd love to hear from you!
