Among the Churches

Current Notes

Greater New York. —The past year has witnessed a marked growth in the reading-room work of Greater New York. Each of the eleven branch churches has a reading-room of its own, and in addition all unite in maintaining a reading-room in the Borough of Manhattan and one in the Borough of Brooklyn. It was found necessary to remove both of these rooms to larger and better quarters, where the seating capacity is almost doubled and the attendance and the sale of literature are proportionately increased. The Manhattan room now occupies the entire front of the eighth floor of Æolian Hall, overlooking the public library and Bryant park, a quiet location with an abundance of sunlight. The Brooklyn room is located on the ground floor at No. 216-A Livingston street, in the center of the shopping district. Since their opening, these new rooms have provided continuous opportunity for and proof of an increased activity in the healing work.—Correspondence.

Goshen, Ind.—The Christian Scientists have purchased the residence at 111 North Fifth street, and will have the interior of the house remodeled at once for church purposes. The Christian Science church of Goshen has been contemplating the purchase of a home of their own for a number of years. For the past four years they have occupied rooms on the second floow of the Spohn Building. It is expected that the building will be ready for use within a few weeks. It is the intention of the church, however, to build a new structure on this location, perhaps within a few years.
