Among the Churches

Current Notes


Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn .—The Christian Science churches of Minneapolis and St. Paul united this year in maintaining a reading-room tent at the state fair. The fair is held under the auspices of the Minnesota State Agricultural Society and is considered the largest of its kind in the United States, if not in the world, while its sessions extend over a full week. We were fortunate in securing a most advantageous location, and created a tent fifty feet long by thirty wide, which was supplied with all the works of our Leader in ample quantities, together with the Quarterly, pamphlets, and current publications of the Publishing Society.

We are very enthusiastic over the outcome of this first effort on our part, which indicated very clearly that in succeeding years it may well be greatly expanded. On days when the weather was favorable, we had from three hundred and fifty to four hundred visitors each day, and it was the general opinion that our tent was the most attractive and popular place on the grounds. The workers in charge reported interesting incidents, which indicated that the tent filled a need and performed a function in advancing the cause of Christian Science.—
