THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE READING ROOM

The deep purpose and great effectiveness of Christian Science Reading Rooms are indicated in a letter written by our dear Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, dated July 8, 1907. In this letter, recommending that the name be Christian Science Reading Room, she concludes with these words (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 236): "Merely this appellative seals the question of unity, and opens wide on the amplitude of liberty and love a far-reaching motive and success, of which we can say, the more the better." Christian Scientists may well ponder the "far-reaching motive and success" envisioned by our Leader for our Reading Rooms.

What is the motive for establishing a Reading Room? The fundamental motive is unquestionably loyal and loving obedience to the God-ordained Manual of The Mother Church by Mrs. Eddy, which provides that each Church of Christ, Scientist, shall have a Reading Room.
