At a recent meeting of a prominent Church of Christ, Scientist, many plans were advanced whereby every one might do his or her share in supporting and promulgating the work of what might be called the Christian Science missionaries. It would be impossible to enumerate here all the good points brought out by the score or more of speakers, but what follows will show the trend of the meeting and furnish hints upon which the reader may act when opportunity presents.

In the propaganda of Christian Science work is not limited to the preaching of the gospel. The sinful are reformed, not by fear of future punishment or hope of future reward, but by redirection of their course through the attraction of right thinking and doing as taught in Christian Science. The work of the Christian Science missionary movement is characterized by the healing of sickness, which sets the seal of authenticity upon it. Evidences of health restored are the "signs" which Jesus declared should mark the labor of those who understood and obeyed his teachings. The effective Christian Science worker, therefore, is welcomed everywhere, because his mission is not only to preach good tidings unto the meek, but to "bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that arte bound; ... to comfort all that mourn; ... to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness."
