Church of Christ Scientist, Recorder Road

feb 27_20160227_0007

Illness is an illusion that can be cured by prayer alone, so they would sit in this church with their tumours and their heart diseases, their respiratory problems and their haemorrhoids, and pray to Jesus that their pain would disappear. It never did, of course, because they took no medication, and all that happened was that they died more quickly.

The Christian Scientists have gone now, and today the building serves as a Greek Orthadox church, dedicated to the Holy Mother of God.
