I must confess, I have a pile of instruction manuals I rarely read hidden away in a bottom drawer in my kitchen. There are manuals for appliances and even a fish tank filter. They offer essential practical information, but admittedly, I only read these manuals when an appliance stops working.
However, I own one manual that has earned a bedside location for weekly nighttime reading. Why? Because the instruction and wise guidance I follow from this manual heals.
I’m referring to the Manual of The Mother Church by the Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy. This slim book stands as the foundation and pillar of government for The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, and it includes essential instructions for branch churches and members worldwide.
