We are sometimes asked for advice as to how greater growth of Christian Science may be brought about in communities wherein the work has been established for some considerable time, yet the organized church or society has not advanced in membership as rapidly as have similar organizations in other places.

The so-called broadening of religious thought in late years has been very marked, and in so far as the change has signified an increase of charitableness and consideration for the convictions of others, it is an occasion for thanksgiving.
