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


An invitation to the 2020 Annual Meeting
of The First Church of Christ, Scientist

Theme: Our duty to God, to our Leader, and to mankind



Dear Members and Friends,

It is a joy to invite you to Annual Meeting 2020 in Boston or 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.

Below you will find a message from the Christian Science Board of Directors and also an invitation video sharing some thoughts on the theme of the meeting.

Looking forward to our time together in June,

Laurie Q. Richardson, CSB
Clerk of The Mother Church


Simultaneous interpretation in French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish will be offered to visitors attending in person as well as live online.
