3From this date the Sunday services of our denomina- tion shall be conducted by Readers in lieu of pastors. Each church, or society formed for Sunday worship,

6shall elect two Readers: a male, and a female. One of these individuals shall open the meeting by reading the hymns, and chapter (or portion of the chapter) in the

9Bible, lead in silent prayer, and repeat in concert with the congregation the Lord's Prayer. Also, this First Reader shall give out any notices from the pulpit, shall

15The First Reader shall read from my book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," alternately in response to the congregation, the spiritual interpreta-

9Christian Scientists, all over the world, who are let- terly fit and specially spiritually fitted for teachers, can teach annually three classes only. They shall teach
