The Christian Science Reading Room

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy writes on page 454: "Love for God and man is the true incentive in both healing and teaching. Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the way." It was her great love for humanity that led our beloved Leader to establish the Christian Science Reading Room as an integrant activity of The Mother Church and its branch churches. Wherever there is a branch of The Mother Church there will also be found a Reading Room. It is always a friend to the traveler, and even in foreign lands there is no need for him to feel lonely or a stranger where there is a Reading Room waiting to give him a welcome.

Anyone who has had the great privilege of taking part in this work knows what a blessing these havens are to the sick and sorrowful, the depressed and unemployed—to all, indeed, who are seeking a clearer understanding of Truth, and of their relationship to the Father-Mother God. The librarian in charge arranges the Reading Room to receive the guests. While these practical duties are being carried out, his or her thoughts are busy realizing the truth about this guest room.
