Among the Churches.

The truth of our dear Leader's words, that "giving does not impoverish us in the service of our Maker" (Science and Health, p. 79), has again been proved to us as a church, and our hearts are filled with love and gratitude for the blessings which divine Love has bestowed upon us.

Early in the year there seemed to be a lack of funds in the church, and at a special church meeting we were led to see that our need could be supplied only by having faith in God, by giving more to the parent vine, and by knowing that the little oil in the cruse and the handful of meal in the barrel would not be exhausted by giving. By unanimous vote it was decided to send our own church building fund and one tenth of our monthly collections to the Building Fund of The Mother Church, in addition to what had been sent. Since that has been done, the shadows have been lifted and divine Love is seen to be our only source of supply.

The children of the Sunday School have eagerly sent their fund also, it being their desire to make the mite big with love and the joy that comes with cheerful giving.
