Among the Churches

Current Notes

District of Columbia.—As an index of public thought the press testifies to a changing public sentiment toward the modern religious movement that is steadily exerting an influence for good along all lines of human activity. Articles favorable to Christian Science are now frequently found in newspaper columns. Especially is the spirit of fairness toward this teaching in evidence among the newspaper men of Washington. The files of this office show that in the last year not a single criticism of Christian Science has appeared in any of the Washington papers. A few unkind sermons have been preached against it, but the newspaper men in every instance have been too just and too generous to be a party to an attack of one religious denomination upon another.

The pulpit as a whole is showing an increasing interest in the Christian Science movement. Recently a Washington minister, preaching on the subject, said: "Before I have finished this sermon I hope you will understand that I want to have Christian Science in this church." Since Christian Science is "the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony" (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 1), this minister's wish is probably the wish of other ministers.
