Testimonies report progress

The occasion of the Annual Meeting of The Mother Church affords us an opportunity to consider how we have progressed in specific ways, since the satellite videoconference last December, toward living for all mankind. Indeed, Mrs. Eddy has written of Annual Meeting, "It requires you to report progress, to refresh memory, to rejuvenate the branches and to vivify the buds, to bend upward the tendrils and to incline the vine towards the parent trunk." The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 125.

The conference touched on the role of published testimonies in helping us live for mankind. What could have a more rejuvenating effect on our churches—vivify their blooming, encourage new growth—and entwine us more closely with The Mother Church than refreshing our memory sufficiently to share a testimony relating victories we have won over sin, suffering, and sorrow?
