I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. - Psalms 40:8

It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to defend himself daily against aggressive mental suggestion, and not be made to forget nor to neglect his duty to God, to his Leader, and to mankind. - Mary Baker Eddy, Manual of The Mother Church, Article VIII, Sect. 6


A podcast from the Christian Science Board of Directors on this year’s Annual Meeting theme: “Our duty to God, to our Leader, and to mankind.”

In this special podcast, the Board shares an update on plans for Annual Meeting, discusses the forward progress of the Church during the current global concerns about contagion, and also explores how the theme of Annual Meeting—“Our duty to God, to our Leader, and to mankind”—is proving relevant and helpful in these times.

Dear Members and Friends,

It is a joy to invite you to Annual Meeting 2020 online as part of our worldwide church family! Today we can join in specific preparation. With wisdom and care, Mary Baker Eddy expresses her love for us today in the By-Law, “Alertness to Duty” in the Manual of The Mother Church, Article VIII, Section 6. Your prayerful study and exploration of this By-Law prepares thought with a spiritual sensitivity and engagement to the ideas that will be shared.

Looking forward to our time together in June,

Laurie Q. Richardson, CSB
Clerk of The Mother Church
