 Article XVII


Continued Throughout the Year. Section 1.
The services of The Mother Church shall be
continued twelve months each year. One meeting
on Sunday during the months of July and
August is sufficient. A Christian Scientist is
not fatigued by prayer, by reading the Scriptures
or the Christian Science textbook. Amusement
or idleness is weariness. Truth and Love rest
the weary and heavy laden.

Easter Observances. Sect. 2. In the United
States there shall be no special observances,
festivities, nor gifts at the Easter season by
members of The Mother Church. Gratitude
and love should abide in every heart each day
of all the years. Those sacred words of our
beloved Master, "Let the dead bury their dead,"
and "Follow thou me," appeal to daily Christian
endeavors for the living whereby to exemplify
our risen Lord.

Laying a Corner Stone. Sect. 3. No large
gathering of people nor display shall be allowed
when laying the Corner Stone of a Church of
Christ, Scientist. Let the ceremony be devout
