Dear Fellow Christian Scientists:

We extend a very warm welcome to all of you gathered here today to consider our periodicals, their mission, how they are fulfilling that mission and how we, as individuals and as active church workers, can aid in achieving for these publications the place in today's world which Mary Baker Eddy intended for them. We are indeed grateful that our beloved Leader provided these periodicals for us and for all mankind.
