TO THE MOTHER CHURCH



   Beloved Brethren: - Until recently, I was not aware
that the contribution box was presented at your Friday
evening meetings.  I specially desire that you collect no
moneyed contributions from the people present on these
occasions.
   Let the invitation to this sweet converse be in the words
of the prophet Isaiah: "Ho, every one that thirsteth,

MISC 149


come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come
ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without
money and without price."
   Invite all cordially and freely to this banquet of Christian
Science, this feast and flow of Soul.  Ask them to
bring what they possess of love and light to help leaven
your loaf and replenish your scanty store.  Then, after
presenting the various offerings, and one after another
has opened his lips to discourse and distribute what God
has given him of experience, hope, faith, and understanding,
gather up the fragments, and count the baskets
full of accessions to your love, and see that nothing has
been lost.
                                        With love,
                                        Mary Baker Eddy
