Our Leader's Hymns

How often should our Leader's hymns be sung in church services? is a question asked from time to time by Readers, boards, or members of branch churches. In effect, Mrs. Eddy answered this question in a letter to the Directors of The Mother Church dated March 3, 1903, which she wrote in response to a request that her hymns be sung more frequently in The Mother Church. From this letter, we quote as follows:

"It would be a good thing to have one of my hymns read and sung about every Sunday. It would spiritualize the thought of your audience, and this is more needed in the church than aught else can be."
