Christian Science in Dresden

We know that our co-workers will rejoice with us in hearing of the onward march of Truth in this good city of Dresden.

It was after Christmas, 1897, therefore in the last days of that years, that our teacher first arrived here. We were but two to welcome her, for though there were several who took some slight interest in Christian Science, there were but very few at that time who were willing to investigate it seriously. But the healing work done by Mrs. S—began at once to attract attention, and in April, 1898, she taught her first class. During the months which followed, Sunday and week-day services were organized, testimonial meetings held, and also readings for such foreigners as understood no English,—and then, in the autumn of that year, our teacher had to return to America, and the little band of students here worked on during her absence, along the lines she had laid down, and tried to "quit them like men" and "be strong in the Lord," though conscious of many a mistake and many a stumble.

Slowly but surely, more and more have joined the little working band, and when we had the joy of welcoming her return in the spring of this year, she found new students awaiting her.
