THE CALLING OF READERS

Some of our friends have asked us to sound a note of warning in regard to the tendency upon the part of branch churches to "call" Readers from other fields, in preference to electing from their own membership to these important offices. With this request we gladly comply by republishing an editorial which appeared in the Sentinel several years ago, experience having but confirmed the convictions therein expressed. It was as follows:—

"We are informed that some of the smaller churches, when electing new Readers, have been impressed with a lack of available material within their own ranks, and have felt compelled to draw upon other fields, a condition that should not exist after three years of active public work. The principal lesson to be drawn from this seeming lack of material is that there is need of more specific as well as more general preparation for every branch of Christian Science work. While the healing of the sick is the most important and convincing evidence of the truth of Christian Science, there is other work which must be performed by those who have the welfare of our Cause at heart.
