Special dividends from the Manual

Do you turn often to the Manual of The Mother Church for comfort and healing? Does the Manual stand out in your everyday thought as a perpetually fresh oasis, offering vital spiritual refreshment and clear-cut guidance from God? Or does it seem more like the foundation of a building—strong and essential but concerned with basics and thus rather cataloged and taken for granted?

In writing of the development of the Manual to her thought, Mrs. Eddy shows that it came as did Science and Health—from God, man's divine Principle, Mind. Of these Rules and By-Laws she says: "They were impelled by a power not one's own, were written at different dates, and as the occasion required." Miscellaneous Writings, p. 148.
