Among the Churches

The Rockland Opinion in its issue of July 12, published the following account of the opening of new quarters by the Christian Scientists in that city:—

An event of importance and interest occurred last Sunday morning, when the Christian Scientists of Rockland, comprising First Church of Christ, Scientist, opened their new headquarters. These consist of two rooms on the second floor of the Kimball Block on Main Street, near Limerock,— an auditorium, seating about ninety persons, and an adjoining room in the rear which is to be used as a public reading room during the week, but which can be thrown into the hall on Sundays by opening the folding doors across the full width of the room.

The woodwork of the rooms is cypress, finished with green filler; the floor, varnished yellow pine; the walls are tinted a pale sea green, and the ornamental steel ceiling cream and green, making a very pleasing and harmonious effect. On two of the walls are inscriptions in Old English gilt lettering, very artistically done. One is the Scriptural quotation from St. John, "God is Love," the other, a quotation from Mary Baker G. Eddy, "Divine Love always has met, and always will meet, every human need."
