Among the Churches

Current Notes

Committee on Publication

County of Northumberland, England. — The year just ended has been one of unusual interest. A transition period from war to peace offers an opportunity greater than ever before to Christian Scientists. Old beliefs are being tested and revised, and our duty and privilege is to be alert in the great work of lifting up the standard of Truth, remembering that "millions of unprejudiced minds—simple seekers for Truth, weary wanderers, athirst in the desert—are waiting and watching for rest and drink" (Science and Health, p. 570). Only by scientific right thinking can the reconstruction problems of the world be based upon a sure foundation.

There have been two antagonistic lectures and several adverse references by ministers, but these were not published in detail in the newspapers. At one of these lectures a member of the audience asked and received permission to read the Tenets of The Mother Church. Through the loving attitude taken by Christian Scientists toward these mistaken efforts, together with the judicious distribution of authorized literature in the areas affected, much visible good has been accomplished.
