The Reason for Church

There have doubtless been times when Christian Scientists have asked themselves why their beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, specified in the Church Manual that the prayers in their churches should be for the congregations. This question is answered when it is discerned that the Churches of Christ, Scientist, are established to reach and bless all mankind.

This being the case, all grateful Christian Scientists are eager and ready to have a part in the work to be done in this wide field. They are willing to pray for their brothers because they are eager to make Christian Science more widely known and available; they are alert to manifest the compassionate qualities that draw all men to the feast of Love prepared for them at the church services.
