How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! (Isaiah 52:7)

Our March, 2024 Newsletter

Reading Room Newsletter

March 2024

Dear Friends -

March is Women's History Month.  It is the perfect time to reflect on our Leader. Our theme photo is a drawing of the Baker farm in Bow, New Hampshire.  The Reading Room was established by Mrs. Eddy to provide a systematic outreach to communities by inherently qualified and committed individuals.  Help us cherish this integral part of our church and specially designed to love and support the Cause of Christian Science Healing. 

Prayer for Peace - Prayers for world peace are effective. Let's be persistent in our prayers for all mankind.   The Reading Room offers use of our computers loaded with JSHonline and Concord - two wonderful resources for finding inspiration.  The cost of JSH is $24 / month and Concord is $80 / year.  We offer both of these websites free to our members and friends. 

NFCC -Remember our neighbors in need through monthly donations to the North Fulton Community Charities.  To support NFCC we offer a basket in the sales room for your ongoing donations.   We are open during the week and available when you come to Sunday services and Wednesdays evening meetings.  Cash donations can be made through the envelopes in the pew racks or on the website. 

With love,

Andrea Hunter, Librarian

Hallie Keel, Asst. Librarian / Editor

Did you know Bicknell Young was the nephew of
Brigham Young?  Yes, that Brigham Young. 

Take a fascinating look at the spirit of inter-religious engagement in Salt Lake City, Utah, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, between The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and The Church of Christ, Scientist—the Mormons and the Christian Scientists.

Richard Miles spent 15 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.  Now he’s on a mission to help others.

Note - After reading this account in the print edition I was unable to find the digital version.  The CSM staff was diligent in helping me find it for our newsletter.  I'm so grateful for our friends at the Monitor.

Bible Lesson Workshop

Has Concluded.

Thanks to those who participated and helped facilitate these Friday sessions.  


Come Mark Your Books

Everyone is invited to mark the Bible Lesson in the Sunday School after church at 11:00. 
In 1915 Mary Beacher Longyear wrote an article for the Christian Science Monitor about Asa Gilbert Eddy.  She found that there was much misinformation about our Leader's husband and wished to set the record straight.  The article is in a form that is difficult to read.  Our staff is working on a transcription so that all may easily read this important history.  

A framed image of the original article will be hung in the Reading Room and a transcription available to be read. 

Note: the image of the article was obtained courtesy of Longyear Museum and Heather Vogel Fredrick
