The Publication Committee

That the most popular misconceptions of Christian Science, its teachings and practice, have given place to more general understanding and greater sympathy, must be apparent to even casual readers of the daily press, and it is no less true that, as a whole, public misrepresentation of our Cause and its Leader has steadily decreased within the past few years. There is, of course, a reason for this.

Primarily, the credit for the public's improved attitude must be given to our Leader, who so wisely provided means to an end when she instituted the Board of Lectureship and the Publication Committee, but much credit is also due to the lecturers and to the members of the Publication Committee who have so faithfully and successfully stemmed the tide of prejudice and ignorance which sought to overwhelm our Cause.

The work of the Board of Lectureship has generally met with very ready recognition and support, but in a number of instances the State Publication Committees have practically been thrown upon their own resources, or a few of the larger churches have had to bear the burden of their expences. This has, to some extent, interfered with the usefulness of the committee. Such an unsatisfactory condition is largely due to lack of proper appreciation of the importance of the work, and failure to understand the necessity for a large circulation of our official literature as well as of the papers and magazines in which articles by the Publication Committee appear.
