Our Leader's Letter to the Concord Church

This letter was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 156:1-24

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Concord, N. H.

Beloved Brethren:—You will accept my gratitude for your dear letter, and allow me to reply in words of the Scripture: "I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able"—"able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think," "able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work," "able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day."

When Jesus directed his disciples to prepare for the material passover that, spiritually speaking, is the passover from sense to Soul—he bade them say to the good man of the house: "The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guest chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? and he shall show you a large upper room furnished: there make ready."
