An Open Door

The revelation of Christian Science came to Mary Baker Eddy, and in loving response to God's command she gave it to a weary, waiting world through her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and her other writings. Because of the spiritual import of her teachings she saw the necessity of guarding them against misunderstanding and misuse, and having founded her Church she gave us the Manual containing Rules and By-Laws for its proper government and conduct.

As the Cause advanced, our Leader saw the need for the establishment and maintenance of Reading Rooms where the Bible and her writings, as well as all other authorized Christian Science literature, might be procured; and herein the way-weary traveler finds a veritable haven of rest. As those seeking spiritual help and refreshment turn toward these places thus provided by Love for humanity, they find an "open door" like that spoken of in Revelation: "Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it."
