From the January 1963 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In Miscellany, Mrs. Eddy speaks of the Church of Christ, Scientist, as "the mouthpiece of Christian Science." The full quotation reads (p. 247), "The church is the mouthpiece of Christian Science,—its law and gospel are according to Christ Jesus; its rules are health, holiness, and immortality,—equal rights and privileges, equality of the sexes, rotation in office."

As the members of this church organization consistently live their religion, they will be like a light reaching to the farthest corners of the globe, dispelling the darkness of materiality.

When the writer was a young legal stenographer and beginning the study of Christian Science, she remarked one day to a fellow worker in the office that she simply could not understand God or Christian Science and that there was just no use in pursuing the subject further. Whereupon this worker, who was a Christian Scientist, reminded the writer of a loving deed which the writer had just performed for one of the girls in the department of which she was the head, saying, "That love which you just expressed is of God." The writer could understand this statement, and she saw that she could bring the love of Love into her daily and hourly activity. Encouraged, she began attending church services and soon became an active member of this worldwide movement.
