AMONG THE CHURCHES

The new edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, was dedicated with a simple but impressive service Sunday, March 28. Speaking of the growth of the movement in Spokane, Mrs. Margaret Crane, the Second Reader, said in part,—

"What the gathering together in 1897 of a few earnest seekers for truth to read the Sunday Lesson-Sermons, seed was sown in good ground, where it has grown and waxed strong. The society was incorporated as a church in November, 1898. As our numbers increased from time to time, it was necessary to find more commodious quarters, and it soon became evident that a permanent home must be secured. In October, 1902, the lots upon which this church stands were purchased, and on May 5, 1904, active work began. On the first Sunday in the following September, under a temporary roof, with the sun and fresh breeze of heaven coming through innumerable openings, a happy and grateful people worshiped in the basement of the building. The superstructure went up slowly, and as a tender mother watches the unfoldment of her offspring, so the little band watched the walls ascend and the building take form and outline. Those were days of consecration and unity of purpose, and many times faith would have to rise to understanding to know that God could furnish a table in the wilderness. It is with grateful hearts that we remember our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, who has brought to the world this practical religion, a religion which brings peace to the sorrowing heart, and healing to the sick and sinful."
