Beloved Christian Scientists:—Take courage. God is leading you onward and upward. Relinquishing a material form of Communion advances it spiritually. The material form is a "Suffer it to be so now" and is abandoned so soon as God's Wayshower, Christ, points the advanced step. This instructs us how to be abased and how to abound. Dropping the Communion of The Mother Church does not prevent its distant members from occasionally attending this church.

Mary Baker G. Eddy.
