Of this I am sure, that each Rule and By-law in this Manual will increase the spirituality of him who obeys it, invigorate his capacity to heal the sick, to comfort such as mourn, and to awaken the sinner.
—Mary Baker Eddy, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 230
During the coming year, authors will explore a dozen or so of the By-Laws found under the heading “DISCIPLINE, Article VIII, Guidance of Members” in the Church Manual. We hope this new series will encourage you to take a fresh look at the Manual, be inspired and guided by the divine direction these and the other By-Laws offer, and share your own insights into how following these Rules is guiding you to a fuller life practice of Christian Science.
