The Mission of the Herald

In 1903, Mary Baker Eddy established The Herald of Christian Science. Its purpose: "to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth." The definition of "herald" as given in a dictionary, "forerunner—a messenger sent before to give notice of the approach of what is to follow," gives a special significance to the name Herald and moreover points to our obligation, the obligation of each one of us, to see that our Heralds fulfill their trust, a trust inseparable from the Christ and first announced by Jesus (Mark 16:15), "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

Mary Sands Lee, Christian Science Sentinel, July 7, 1956
