From the February 1895 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis. 310:10-24

My answer to manifold letters relative to members that have gone out of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, returning to it is this. While my affections plead for all, and every one, and my desire is that all shall be redeemed; I am not unmindful that the Scriptures enjoin: "All things shall be done decently and in order."

To continue one's connection with this church, or to regain it, one must comply with the Church Rules. All who desire its fellowship, and to become members of it, must send in their petitions to this effect, to the Clerk of the church, and upon a meeting being called, The First Members will determine the action of the church on this subject.
