THE SPREADING BRANCHES

An American traveler is always impressed when attending services in a Church of Christ, Scientist, in another land with the fact that The Mother Church has branches throughout the world. Mary Baker Eddy states in a letter to a branch church (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 154), "The spreading branches of The Church of Christ, Scientist, are fast reaching out their broad shelter to the entire world."

Every branch of The Mother Church is vitally essential to the symmetry, the perfection, the productivity, of the whole. Each one starts as a tender shoot, with possibly only "two or three...gathered together in my name" (Matt. 18: 20). When rooted and grounded in the established strength of the parent vine, however, its quality is assured.
