Cross and Crown trademark licensing program

The Christian Science Board of Directors is happy to accept applications to license use of the Cross and Crown trademark from branch churches and societies of The Mother Church, Christian Science teachers and lecturers, Christian Science college and university organizations, and Committees on Publication. The Cross and Crown is a registered trademark of the Christian Science Board of Directors and has long been used on Mary Baker Eddy’s writings and the Christian Science periodicals to indicate The Mother Church as the authentic source of these products. As the Cross and Crown trademark is expanded and more widely used through licensing, we expect the public will become increasingly aware of it as a visual identifier of genuine Christian Science services offered in local communities by The Mother Church and its branches and other associated activities.

For Christian Scientists, a time to go higher and deeper

Christian Science Reading Rooms are unique in today’s world. They’re places where people come for quiet spiritual study and often just to pray. Where many have been healed through the deep inner communion with God that’s at the heart of Christian Science teaching.

This healing purpose, and humanity’s urgent need for it, has taken on deepened meaning and immediacy for many Christian Scientists in the wake of a tragic incident of violence in a Reading Room earlier this year. The following commentary by the Chair of the Christian Science Board of Directors expresses the spiritual commitment represented in Reading Rooms and felt by church members throughout the world.
