From the May 1958 issue of The Christian Science Journal

THE MOTHER CHURCH, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, and its branches are established for the sacred purpose of bringing spiritual and Christian healing to communities.

Every community is in great need of what only Christian Science is offering, namely a spiritually scientific understanding of God and of man and the universe. It was this understanding which Christ Jesus used so effectively in solving every human problem and which he said others who knew the truth could also use. This is his promise to all mankind (John 14:12): "Verily, verily, I say unto you. He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."

Thousands of Christian Scientists the world over have been recipients of the blessings which Christian Science brings, but there are untold numbers of people in our church neighborhoods who are unmindful of Christian Science and of how practical its teachings can be in solving and destroying all sorts of human discord.
