On February 17 our branch Church of Christ, Scientist, hosted a New England style "Town Hall Meeting" with the Christian Science Board of Directors. Mother Church and branch church members and adherents of Christian Science assembled together from metropolitan Melbourne, regional Victoria, and Tasmania. The moderator opened the meeting by saying that it was established upon the basis of what Mary Baker Eddy wrote in Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896: "... and gather all my students, in the bonds of love and perfectness, into one grand family of Christ's followers" (p. 273).

I left the meeting, as did others, with a renewed feeling of Christlike fellowship, rejuvenation, and a feeling that much healing of indifference, apathy, and cynicism within the Christian Science movement had occurred. To see and feel the gracious manner of each and every one of the Directors was most rewarding.
