The Cause of Christian Science in its early days was attracting workers from around the world. They were moved by a vital spirit and the conviction that this Cause was greater than all others, and they gave it their all. This series explores some of what lay behind the commitment these individuals made.

They answered the call: Calvin A. Frye

From the February 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal

From the moment Calvin Frye entered Mary Baker Eddy's employ in 1882 to the early December evening in 1910 when she passed on, he faithfully kept his original promise to her that he would stay with her. Calvin Frye's twenty-eight years of devoted personal service to our Leader is unmatched by any other Christian Scientist.
