At all times the privilege of applying for membership in The Mother Church is open, and application blanks and information are readily supplied by the Clerk of The Mother Church, by the clerks of the branch churches, by the librarians of branch church Reading Rooms, and by practitioners and teachers of Christian Science. The thought of applying for membership is foremost, especially before the semiannual elections to membership for which Mrs. Eddy provided in the Church Manual, Article XIII, Section 2. These admission dates are happy occasions, not only for the Board of Directors of The Mother Church, which has the privilege of welcoming to fellowship in the Church of Christ, Scientist, many who believe in our Leader's teachings and desire better to understand them, but for those who have already joined in a great company journeying to the spiritual Jerusalem which Mrs. Eddy defines in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 589) as "Home, heaven."
It is true that one activity begets another, and that the act of joining The Mother Church opens up ways and means of serving God and one's fellow men, with resultant blessings. It is noticeable from a study of the plain requirements in the Church Manual that our Leader welcomed to the Church she established the "simple seekers for Truth" whom she mentions in Science and Health (p. 570), and that she made the obligations for membership not too exacting. Readers of the Church Manual know that the annual payment for membership, designated "Per Capita Tax" (Manual, Art. VIII, Sect. 13) calls for a minimum of one dollar per member—a small amount indeed. The student who has touched the healing power of Christian Science cannot avoid going forward and accepting the greatest blessing of his experience which beckons him into full fellowship and happiness. As is shown by the Clerk's standing notice in the last issue of the Sentinel, the next admission to membership in The Mother Church takes place on Friday, November 2, 1934.
