“What is needed, then, is to rekindle individually that fundamental spark of spiritual vitality. Then because one is so imbued with infectious delight with what one is discovering of spiritual reality, the spark ignites and the flame of spiritual purpose grows in our daily life. A great desire to share this holy glow with others impels thought and action. This cannot help resulting in a vibrant, dynamic church that is an irresistible attraction to others, because it is alive with the Christ-spirit of sharing and real love.” Increasing spirituality—growing church by Jill Gooding June 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal.
All (church & non-church members) are invited to join the conference and prepare by reading the above wonderful article with the idea of deepening our metaphysics for the church and Reading Room in mind.
The 2nd Mets Conference Call will be Monday, July 31st at 7 pm
to continue the discussion and consider the revelation, reason and demonstration of spiritual growth.
