True benevolence

A look at Mary Baker Eddy’s benevolence, and what her example can mean for us today.

From the October 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, was deeply benevolent and encouraged her students to be so as well. For example, when The Mother Church was first being built in Boston and donations slowed, she gave about 40 of her students the opportunity to each contribute $1,000 toward the project.
