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. 

A testimony meeting — anywhere, anytime

Many years ago , after I had been teaching French, I went abroad to study. One Wednesday afternoon, a fellow student and I rented a boat and rowed out onto Lake Geneva in Switzerland. At one point we began talking about Christian Science and what our church services were like. When I told her about our Wednesday testimony meetings, she became very interested.

She wanted to know if I had ever given a testimony, and she asked if I would share one of my healings. I agreed, and as I began, she stopped and asked me to stand up and give it just as I would at church. Soon afterward, I was standing in the middle of a boat giving a testimony! It was a new experience for me, but she was moved by my healing and wanted to know more about Christian Science.
