Pendleton (Ore.) East Oregonian
In the Pacific Northwest the first systematically organized work of the Church of Christ, Scientist, began a little more than twelve years ago.
In the years that have intervened these simple gatherings have grown, and their influence has spread, until to-day, in the three states of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, there are some forty organized churches and societies as well as many smaller gatherings at which regular services are held. Eighteen of these organizations maintain free public reading rooms in the business sections of their respective cities. In fact in every city and almost every town of the Pacific Northwest, including those of British Columbia, there are to be found those established in the Cause of Christian Science, by reason of the spiritual, moral, and physical benefits received through its ministry.
The unusual growth and increasing interest in Christian Science is sometimes cause for inquiry, but this seems reasonably accounted for by the fact that a large proportion of its present adherents have first sought the ministration of Christian Science by reason of sore physical or mental distress, rather than faith in its doctrine, and this seeking having been rewarded by the attainment of better health and increased peace and good will, the recipient naturally associates himself with that which has been the means through which this betterment has come, and in turn desires to share this glad gospel with his fellow-men.
