Church service heals

One weekend in the summer of 2020, my whole body ached. However, since I was overdue with a major gardening project for some neighbors, and the rain had stopped, I went ahead with it that Sunday afternoon.

The project went smoothly as I prayed about it, and while I was tired when I got home, I felt OK. But during supper I began to feel quite uncomfortable. After my wife and I finished eating, I was ready to head upstairs, take a shower, have some quiet time for more prayer, and go to bed. But that’s when my wife suggested we listen to a replay of the Sunday service from The Mother Church (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston)—our favorite Sunday evening activity. Although I was eager to get to bed, I agreed. 

As the service began, I realized I had a choice: I could either pay attention and get something out of it or just let it play in the background before cleaning up and going to bed. I decided to pay attention, trusting that I would benefit from the reading aloud of that week’s Bible Lesson-Sermon from the Christian Science Quarterly, as I always had.
