The Literature Distribution Worker

LITERATURE distribution work is one of the most interesting and fruitful activities of the Christian Science movement. Most of the workers in this particular activity are serving through gratitude for the operation of Truth in their own lives. Many could tell how they first found Christian Science through the periodicals. These periodicals were established through divine guidance and inspiration by our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. On page 353 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" we read: "I have given the name to all the Christian Science periodicals. The first was The Christian Science Journal, designed to put on record the divine Science of Truth; the second I entitled Sentinel, intended to hold guard over Truth, Life and Love; the third, Der Herold der Christian Science, to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth; the next I named Monitor, to spread undivided the Science that operates unspent. The object of the Monitor is to injure no man, but to bless all mankind."

The stories that literature distribution workers could tell of lives redeemed, health restored, businesses saved, and hope renewed, which have come to their notice in their work, prove that the periodicals are doing the work which their Founder intended they should do. The periodicals guide their readers to an understanding of Christian Science and to the study of the works of Mrs. Eddy.
