Christian Science Services in the White Mountains

From the sprightly little paper called Among the Clouds, published at Mt. Washington, N. H., we publish the following account of services held and to be held in the beautiful little Christian Science Chapel near the White Mountain House in New Hampshire:—

The subject of the Lesson-Sermon at last Sunday morning's service of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, near the White Mountain House, was "Truth," the golden text being from Psalm 145:18, "The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth." There are no personal preachers in Christian Science churches, the Lesson-Sermon consisting of correlated selections read from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, elucidating the subject and developing its spiritual meaning in accordance with the teaching of Christian Science. These lessons are prepared by a Bible Lesson Committee connected with the Mother Church of the denomination, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, and they are used by every Christian Science Church in the world. The subjects are designated by Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy of Concord, N. H., the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science and Leader of the denomination.

The service Sunday was simple, interesting, and impressive. The church building, the only one of any denomination in this immediate vicinity, is very pretty and was much admired by the visitors. It was erected in 1898 by subscriptions of Christian Scientists who visited the mountains.
