In a recent issue of the Christian Science Sentinel, one who contributes a testimony of healing has written: "I count among my greatest treasures membership in The Mother Church." Men and women, and children above the age of twelve years, may apply for membership if they believe in the doctrines of Christian Science presented in its platform and teaching found in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

Twice each year applicants are admitted to membership by The Christian Science Board of Directors (see Manual, Art. XIII, Sect. 2). Applications to be considered for the next admission must reach the Clerk not later than September 29, 1947. The admission date is November 7, 1947. If those who wish to take this step will forward their applications as early as possible rather than wait until near the closing date, it will greatly facilitate the work in the Clerk's office. Approvers are responsible for the accuracy of the applications and for securing the necessary countersignatures. An Instruction Folder which explains simply and thoroughly all that is required in applying for membership accompanies each application. Please give special attention to the paragraph on page 2 entitled "Form 2."

Application banks for membership in The Mother Church may be obtained from practitioners listed in The Christian Science Journal, from clerks of branch churches and societies, and society, or at the Reading Rooms. Applications may also be obtained from Gordon V. Comer, Clerk, 107 Falmouth Street, Boston 15, Massachusetts.
