Week 93: “I was raised on tithing and believe in giving 10% of my income to help support church. Why is there not a tradition of tithing in Christian Science churches?"
—Christian Science practitioners Mark Swinney and Christie Hanzlik offer some helpful prayers with regards to tithing and a deeper sense of financially contributing to Christian Science branch churches.
—Having discovered a “reading room” of the past while on vacation, a church member values his branch church’s current Reading Room, and imagines the possibilities of what Reading Rooms could become.
—The Sunday School at First Church, Santa Rosa, CA has grown, and now has students from pre-K through college. Watch and listen as teachers and students share what is special about their Sunday School experience.
—John Best-Jarvis and Kristen Wakefield discuss an example of the work of the "Prayer Warriors" work at the downtown Sacramento Christian Science Reading Room. This is a short excerpt of the breakout session on Reading Rooms as Community Embrace
—How can we pray when there seem to be conflicting or dominating personalities in a branch church? Practitioners Anne Cooling and Sushil Likhi offer helpful ideas on how to pray in these situations.
