Church Fraternity

Boston Daily Advertiser

At the meeting of the Congregational ministers in this city yesterday morning, Christian Science and the Christian Scientists were discussed. The discussion was thorough, yet entirely friendly, and what was said in criticism was offset by what was said in praise. Altogether the sentiment, as expressed by such well-known divines as Rev. Dr. Ruen Thomas, was "to live and let live." What a contrast this situation presents with the situation of a few years ago, when the Christian Scientists were in a sense ostracized and their creed contemned. The followers of Mrs. Eddy have literally forced themselves into public favor by their quiet Christian life, by their practice of Christian charity by their fraternal spirit even towards their harshest critics. Our orthodox, evangelical, and liberal brotherhoods have taken a step forward in recognizing the Scientists as being of, not necessarily apart from them.—Boston Daily Advertiser.
