In September, the Arizona Daily Star ran a front-page article detailing how the geographic center of Tucson has changed over the decades. Among many other places, the piece briefly mentioned that First Church of Christ, Scientist, Tucson, had at one time been the location of the center of town. It seemed worth sharing in a letter to the editor that although that church building is no longer there (the church has owned three different buildings since its founding more than 100 years ago), the congregation still worships nearby and continues to be active in the community, seeking to fulfill its Christian purpose. The short letter below was published both online and in print, September 28, 2019.
