Did Eddy provide guidance on benedictions?

December 18, 2019

We sometimes receive questions about Mary Baker Eddy’s direction concerning the benedictions that Readers select for the end Christian Science Sunday church services.

The answer is brief. Since the “Order of Services” was first published in August 1889, Sunday services have always closed with a benediction.1 

Other than a request that they be a part of the church services, Eddy gave no specific comment or direction about benedictions.
