The value of an intimate acquaintance with the Manual

To the student of Christian Science, the Manual of The Mother Church by Mrs. Eddy is an indispensable tool whose power for producing good is evidenced in the wealth of spiritual ideas it brings to light. This volume goes far beyond being merely a handbook for church organization. Each activity and Rule represents the healing Christ and expresses a universal love for all mankind. Each By-Law allows for a disciplined yet free-flowing unfoldment of good through spiritual inspiration.

My discovery of the value of the Manual came as a result of prayer. I had been appointed to certain branch church committee work and found myself in awe of fulfilling its purpose. So I began to pray, knowing that divine Mind would supply me with all that I needed to know. The answer came one day as I sat studying. My eyes came to rest on a tiny volume—the Church Manual—propped against some other books. "The answer's got to be in there," I thought. "That's the book about the Church!"
