From the Field

[A paper read before the Christian Science Literature Distribution Committee of The Mother Church by William R. Rathvon]

In its higher sense our literature distribution work is Christianly scientific service. It is giving without waiting to be asked; it is seeking our own in another's good; it is sowing seed by the wayside that the harvest may be reaped by hands unknown. It is launching our reassuring messages in the stream of human consciousness; and who is there that can measure how far they may travel or know the ports they may enter!

Every piece of Christian Science literature that is intelligently distributed becomes a missionary, and each Christian Science Literature Distribution Committee is a home and foreign mission society that daily sends out thousands of paper delegates, each one of which is silently carrying a message of "on earth peace, good will toward men."
