The Christian Century

We have read in a recent issue the article, "Fighting Quarantine." In stating that during the epidemic of influenza the Christian Science church remained open, the article says that this was a discourtesy to the health authorities.

The article speaks of a "belief that religion should not put the formal, the theoretical, the ritualistic interests before the life interests of the people." Christian Scientists would not differ with that statement; for they sincerely believe in and strive to practice that which pertains to the real life interests of the people. They find that this is never secured through deference to arguments of fear and shutting up the churches at a time when the healing and comforting effects of divine revelation are most needed.

We'd love to hear from you!
