Among the Churches

Current Notes

Committee on Publication

Vermont.—The following items indicate to some extent the growth and steady advance of our cause in the state of Vermont. First Church of Christ, Scientist, at St. Johnsbury, after having purchased the church building formerly occupied by the Union Baptist Church, finished off two rooms, one for services and the other for a reading room. The auditorium is to be completed at a later date. At Morrisville the Christian Scientists organized as a Christian Science Society, and their card appeared in The Christian Science Journal of July, 1919. The Montpelier Christian Science Society advises that a more systematic distribution of literature is being carried on than in former years. The church in Randolph reports that more interest in Christian Science is manifested in the town and there is larger attendance at services. Word comes from Burlington that the society there has demonstrated larger quarters for its reading room, this advance step having been taken in March, 1919. At Lyndonville the use of the hall in which services are held had been given by an individual, but in June, 1919, the society there began paying rent for the hall, considering this a step in the right direction. A conference of the Christian Science workers in the state was held at Burlington, June 27, 1919.

The attitude of the press in Vermont is apparently quite favorable to Christian Science. The following is a summary of items clipped from the newspapers in the state: Items adverse to Christian Science, 1; corrective articles, 4; articles favorable to Christian Science, 5; items mentioning Christian Science and Christian Scientists, 36; reprints from The Christian Science Monitor, 173; Christian Science lectures published in part, 8; items mentioning Mrs. Eddy, 5; items pertaining to public health, 17; miscellaneous items, 5; total, 254.
