Letters to the PRESS—and other articles

The article "Not Ready For Prime Time," by John Strahinich [July], regarding the publicity being received by the First Church of Christ, Scientist, and focusing primarily on a former member of the Christian Science Publishing Society, is based on a faulty perception of how the Board of Directors operates.

I would like to offer a view from my perspective, and my credentials for offering it. I was a member of that board from 1983 until I resigned, in 1990. In that capacity I served as designated in the Manual of The Mother Church— the "rule" book for the government of the church, written by its founder, Mary Baker Eddy. I felt when I was asked to serve as a Director that I had a good knowledge of both the requirements of the Manual and what the work of the board entailed.
