In 1901, Mary Baker Eddy gave her annual communion message to the members of her church. She addresses a variety of topics, including the supremacy and goodness of God. She also explains more fully the Christ as “Jesus’ spiritual selfhood.” She speaks about the pastor of the Church of Christ, Scientist (the Bible and her book Science and Health).
Near the conclusion of the message she encourages her followers: “...study the Bible and the textbook of our denomination; obey strictly the laws that be, and follow your Leader only so far as she follows Christ.” (p. 34) These words continue to resonate with and guide Christian Scientists today.
