Among the Churches

In a communication to the Tribune, Miss Clara Shepard, C.S.B., First Reader of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Sioux City, says:—

A remark which was reported to me, hinting that Christian Science was dying out, because we were moving from our former office rooms, made me wish to tell a little of what we are doing as a religious body in this city. We were simply moving out of the old into the new, for the demand of the work increases, and larger and better rooms must be had to accommodate the needs of the people and the better accomplish the good the cause represents. We now have three rooms instead of two, the larger one to be arranged in a comfortable manner for a reading room, where any one wishing to know something of Christian Science may come and read the authorized books on the subject, and also the monthly and weekly, published by this denomination. The rooms will be open every day in the week, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., except Sunday.

Our church in the month of December collected and paid out over twelve hundred dollars from those only who have been helped by the Truth which Christian Science teaches. And every one gave, glad of the opportunity to express in some way the gratitude they felt for the great good this religion has brought them. There are many hundreds in this city whom Christian Science is blessing. All manner of evils have been destroyed for those unfortunately under their influence, and not knowing how to overcome temptation. Sickness of every kind has been healed. Death in some degree has been overcome.
