LOCALLY FUNDING THE MISSION

From the December 2004 issue of The Christian Science Journal


It's clear from the Eddy-Farlow correspondence that, from the beginning, local branch churches and Christian Science societies in the jurisdiction of a Committee on publication were to take responsibility for financial support of the Committee's work. The Christian Science Sentinel of July 21, 1906, described this responsibility: "It should be borne in mind that this work cannot be carried on without expense, and this expense, when divided pro rata among the membership of the branch churches throughout a whole State, is but a small item for each one, and yet it is as necessary to the prosperity of the local churches as is any other outlay.
