Profitable Seed

A Christian Science organization in a small town has some problems of which larger ones possibly know nothing. Our society is in a small town in Michigan, and at times the workers have become discouraged because so few came to the services. Many of our members have moved away, and sometimes we have only three or four persons at a Wednesday evening meeting; but we have the usual reading even if there are not enough for the singing.

Recently we learned of a result of these services which gives us much to be thankful for. Our First Reader, while visiting one of the large cities, attended a Wednesday evening meeting at a Christian Science church, and after the service was over, while talking with those present, she found that there were ten persons at the meeting who had come from her home town. While not all were members, all were from our little society. Hearing of this we began to think of others who had gone out from our society into the world and who were doing good work, and were surprised at the number. When we realized the good that has come from the seed sown here, we were indeed grateful.
