From the September 2004 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A welcomed view of volunteering What a refreshing experience to open the July Journal to "The new spirit of volunteering"! Often one hears the view expressed that Christian Scientists and their local churches are fulfilling their spiritual obligation to help their neighbor by supporting the Reading Room, literature distribution, care committee, and lectures; leave the community outreach for other needs to other churches and individuals. Your piece on volunteering beautifully shows the way to serve both the spiritual and human needs of one's community and experience the joys of personal fulfillment.
