"A Religion of Deeds."

The following appreciative word from the Pendleton, Ore., Oregonian, touches upon the much vexed question of the true function of the church in the community, and its practical work in counteracting the temptations which seem to arise on every hand. That the Reading Rooms of the Christian Science churches are meeting the needs of a part of the large transient or floating population of the cities is well known to Christian Scientists, but we do not recall having seen this work alluded to before in exactly the same way as it is now commended in the Oregonian.

The article to which we refer is under the caption, "A Religion of Deeds," and is as follows:—

"Much has been said against the Christian Scientists. Their creed has been flayed by the orthodox churches from one end of the world to the other, but the Christian Scientists, as viewed from the Pendleton standpoint, are practical, sensible, God-fearing folk. Their church door is never locked against the world. Their faith is founded upon investigation and their religion is one of deeds.
