"Prayer is the Christian's vital breath" (Christian Science HymnalNo. 284), and when Christians sincerely gather in prayer, restoration and healing are possible. So what is it that would keep Christians from valuing each other? What sometimes builds a wall of separation? Bring your questions about intra-Christian dialogue to this chat, explore with us the universality of prayer and the specific contribution Christian Science can make toward healing within our Christian family, your community, and the world.
