Subscribing for the Christian Science Periodicals

An experienced church worker once called my attention to Article VIII, Section 14, of the Manual of The Mother Church, in which Mary Baker Eddy writes, "It shall be the privilege and duty of every member, who can afford it, to subscribe for the periodicals which are the organs of this Church."

Man possesses unlimited spiritual supply because of his oneness with the source of all true supply, God. Therefore the prayerful endeavor to recognize and demonstrate this fact will enable each member of The Mother Church, as well as all other students of Christian Science, to subscribe for the periodicals. In fact, no student can afford to be without the wise counsel, the comfort, the information, and the inspiring testimonies of healing contained in them.

This By-Law from the Manual has encouraged me to carry a continuous subscription to the periodicals even during years when the financial picture appeared gloomy, Great was the value received when the articles and testimonies poured into the home, each one seemingly designed to meet my own particular need. Increased spiritual understanding, much of it gained through the study of the periodicals, resulted in numerous demonstrations that lifted the whole family into better home, school, and working conditions.
