The Fields are White already for Harvest

During the month of December, having occasion to visit the town of Winsted, Conn., it was suggested that we should arrange to meet a few friends of the patient we were to call upon and talk to them in an informal way on Christian Science. On entering the parlor we found twenty-three persons who had come to learn something of the truths of Divine healing. After an hour spent in talking and answering questions, it was suggested, as there were so many interested, that they arrange to meet each Sunday and read the lesson. The following Sunday there were thirty-four persons present, and much interest was shown. On the third Sunday we visisted the town for the second time, and in the afternoon there were forty-six present. At this meeting the regular service was held, the lesson for the day was read, and our hymnal was used, the friends having secured twelve copies from the publishers. At the service held January 13 there were forty-five in attendance, and all were much impressed with the beauty and simplicity of the whole service.

There were so many present at the third meeting who accepted the truth of Christian Science, and so much general interest was shown, that it was suggested that the friends arrange to form a society for regular service. This was done, and now as soon as a First and Second Reader can be secured in accordance with the requirements of the Church Manual, they will organize a permanent church society.

Truly the fields are white already for the harvest, and it only needs that those who have been blessed and made free be faithful to the teachings of our inspired Leader to assure a bounteous harvest.
