Circulation of the Christian Science Publications

By Mrs. Anna E. Herzog

A mission being "an organization . . . for improving morally or socially, etc., those in need, sickness, poverty, ignorance, etc.," its missionaries would be those sent forth to aid in such a purpose. Our periodicals are missionaries in this true sense. They go cut with the Christlike intent to help those in need physically, morally, spiritually, by bringing to them the message: Rise out of your supposititious bondage, for only the good is true!

Circulation means "act of passing from place to place or from person to person." Thus ours is the great work of seeing that these blessed and blessing missionaries, the Christian Science periodicals do, extensively and continuously, circulate "from place to place" and "from person to person." Mary Baker Eddy says in the Manual that the Church she founded "is designed to be built on the Rock, Christ; even the understanding and demonstration of divine Truth, Life, and Love, healing and saving the world from sin and death" (p. 19). To circulate the literature of a church with that avowed purpose is missionary work indeed!
