"Practitioners' Charges"

[Reprinted from The Christian Science Journal, March, 1959]

From the August 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Gratitude is the keynote of healing in Christian Science. It opens the door to the reception of Love's abundant outpouring of good to patient and practitioner alike. Gratitude and giving are correlated in Christian Science. In these times of rising costs of living, it is well to review the measure of our giving.

Our wise and loving Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, gives counsel and admonition to guide both practitioner and patient in the matter of proper remuneration for Christian Science treatment. Her article entitled "The Laborer and his Hire" on page 214 of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany deals helpfully with this subject; likewise, a question and answer beginning on page 13 of Rudimental Divine Science.

Under the caption, "Practitioners' Charges," Mrs. Eddy says (Miscellany, p. 237), "Christian Science practitioners should make their charges for treatment equal to those of reputable physicians in their respective localities."
