Among the Churches

Corner-stone Laid at Riverside, Cal.

On October 17, 1900, at sunrise—6.17 A.M.—was laid the corner-stone of the edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Riverside, Cal.

The services were opened by the singing of a hymn from the Christian Science Hymnal. Several beautiful and appropriate Bible selections were then read by the Second Reader; the First Reader reading correlative passages from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy. All present united in silent prayer and the audible repetition of the Lord's Prayer, with its spiritual interpretation as given in Science and Health.

After the singing of another hymn the "Scientific Statement of Being" was repeated, and the laying of the stone was proceeded with.
