OUR HOME

Mary Baker Eddy, our beloved Leader', once spoke of home as "your calm, sacred retreat" (Christian Science Sentinel, Vol. XLIII, p. 881). And in a wonderfully illuminating paragraph on page 58 of her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," she defines "home" with her characteristic perceptiveness. She writes, "Home is the dearest spot on earth, and it should be the centre, though not the boundary, of the affections."

As we seek to enrich our individual concept of home it is most rewarding to explore the many authorized books giving precious glimpses of Mrs. Eddy's manner in her home. We read that she was gracious, compassionately helpful, quick to laugh, alert, intuitive, gentle, and, above all, methodical in her daily study of the Christ Science. Her students testify that a warm sense of hospitality pervaded her home.
