‘An army of pray-ers’
That Sunday, I didn’t feel like going to church. I had a ton to do before Monday, “homework” hanging over my head. Everything inside me seemed to be saying, “You read the Christian Science Bible Lesson on your own. You pray. You can afford to skip church one week.”
But on the heels of that came another thought: “Maybe you can afford to miss church. But can the world afford to have you skip?”
It’s easy to think of church or Sunday School as being for us. It’s where we go to grow, to get inspired, to get our questions answered, and to be healed. And that’s awesome! Church is there for all those reasons, and I’m regularly grateful for the support and love I find every time I walk through the doors of my branch Church of Christ, Scientist.
