Among the Churches

The Christian Scientists of Exira, Ia., have recently moved from a private residence to a nice large room in the Guernsey Building. The following sketch of the work was read at the first Sunday service in their new quarters.

The seed of Truth was first sown here some fifteen years ago, by the healing through Christian Science treatment of one of our local leaders, after having been given up to die by the doctors. After this positive proof that Christian Science is the Truth taught and practised by Jesus Christ, our present leaders took it up and lived it, and demonstrated it for themselves and others, until a number were sufficiently interested to organize an association (January 9, 1895) known as the Christian Science Dispensary Association of Exira.

Under this association regular meetings were held every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening for more than two years. For these meetings rooms were gratuitously furnished by Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Gates. Later a reading room was established and kept open to the public Tuesday and Friday afternoons.
