DUTIES OF READERS OF THE MOTHER CHURCH
AND OF ITS BRANCH CHURCHES


Moral Obligations. Section 1. The Readers
of The Mother Church and of all its branch
churches must devote a suitable portion of their
time to preparation for the reading of the Sunday
lesson, - a lesson on which the prosperity of
Christian Science largely depends. They must
keep themselves unspotted from the world, -
uncontaminated with evil, - that the mental atmosphere
they exhale shall promote health and
holiness, even that spiritual animus so universally
needed.


First Readers' Duties. Sect. 2. It shall be
the duty of the First Readers to conduct the
principal part of the Sunday services, and the
Wednesday evening meetings.


Suitable Selections. Sect. 3. The First
Readers shall read, as a part of the Wednesday
evening services, selections from the SCRIPTURES,
and from SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO
THE SCRIPTURES.
