The Branches and the Vine

The practice of systematic giving through the channels of The Mother Church for the support of the Cause of Christian Science is to be commended. Members of branch churches throughout the world have had an unusual opportunity in this direction during the building of the new Publishing House. This task was performed with a zeal and dispatch which astonished observers, and was a source of gratification to Christian Scientists because it displayed united action with the purpose of blessing all mankind. It demonstrated the resourcefulness and capacity of divine Mind and illustrated the words of our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, when she said, in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 445), "Teach the great possibilities of man endued with divine Science."

The habit thus formed of giving through such a channel should not fall into disuse now that the above-mentioned task has been completed. Christian Science is fundamentally world-wide in its ministry. It cannot be localized any more than can light. It operates through every right activity; its purpose is to bless all races and people. Every healing, every effort for reformation, every conquest of fear, every unselfed thought is felt in the farthest corner of the mental realm. Because God is not local, neither are our loving efforts, which reflect Him, for they gain an impulse from on high.
