HELPS FOR THE USHER

The writer, seeking God's guidance in bringing his letter to a Church of Christ, Scientist, in a city where he had newly located, finally was led to join a branch of The Mother Church where he found much joy and opportunity for spiritual growth. One of the first impressions he had of this branch church was the love expressed by its ushers. Realizing that the light of welcome which they manifested was not personal, but rather was the reflection of Love, God, he felt less a stranger and more as one returning home.

Eventually the writer was appointed to the staff of ushers in this church. Desiring to understand and perform his duties properly, he began to study the office of usher in the light of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. He found that King David had given his son Solomon some excellent advice on serving God when he said (I Chron. 28:9), "And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind."
