"Love currency"

Christian scientists are confronted with the question, "What is the great need in building and dedicating Christian Science churches?" That money is the chief need is a generally accepted belief. Mary Baker Eddy has written, however, in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 494), "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." Our part, therefore, is to reflect Love, by expressing only those qualities that manifest the divine nature.

At the time of the building of the Extension of The Mother Church the members of that church lovingly contributed two million dollars for its erection. The contributions meant much sacrifice on the part of many, but they resulted in a grand achievement. Our Leader says (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, pp. 13, 14), "Because Christian Scientists virtually pledged this munificent sum not only to my church but to Him who returns it unto them after many days, their loving giving has been blessed." And she adds farther on, "God will pour them out a blessing above the song of angels, beyond the ken of mortals—a blessing that two millions of love currency will bring to be discerned in the near future as a gleam of reality."
