Among the Churches

The opening services of First Church of Christ, Scientist, in their new quarters, the old Second Presbyterian Church, corner of West Eighth and Chestnut Streets, yesterday morning (Sunday, January 6), was a memorable occasion to those present. The church was comfortably filled, quite a large number of strangers being present.

A great transformation has taken place since the Scientists leased it, six weeks ago. New windows have been put in, the church has been painted inside and out, and the inside decorated in tasteful colors, new carpets, pews, etc., and the whole building improved in every respect. The interior color scheme is very quiet and harmonious, being of a terra-cotta and brown. On the alcove in rear of reading desks is the text from John, "God is Love." On the left hand of the rostrum is the text from Revelation, "Now is come Salvation and Strength, and the Kingdom of our God and the Power of His Christ." On the right hand is a quotation from Mrs. Eddy's book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures:" "Divine Love always has met, and always will meet, every human need."
