Church Projects

In "Miscellaneous Writings," our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, states (p. 135), "Our watchwords are Truth and Love; and if we abide in these, they will abound in us, and we shall be one in heart,—one in motive, purpose, pursuit." A church membership is often united by working on a specific project, and progress results for the church and its members.

One church writes:

"Each month in the past year a subject has been chosen for individual homework, or study for the entire membership. We have used 'A Rule for Motives and Acts' (Art. VIII, Sect. 1, of the Manual of The Mother Church by Mrs. Eddy), taking a subject for consecrated study such as: true brotherliness, charitableness, forgiveness, and right motives. This study has brought more unity among our members, greater activity in committee work, much better attendance at Wednesday evening testimony meetings, as well as at Sunday services. There is a new feeling of inspiration and spontaneity in testimonies. Not only is there better response to the readings from the desk, but we are hearing testimonies from those who have never testified before or who have not done so for a long time.
