Letters from the Field
[Extract from report of Committee on Prison Work at Folsom State Prison and Preston School of Industry, California]
During the period covered by this report the Committee has conducted Christian Science services regularly on Sundays at Folsom State Prison and Preston School of Industry. From February to October, services were regularly held on Sundays at the Folsom Prison Road Camp in Kern River Canyon. Five Christian Science lectures have been given since the last report—four at the prison and one at the school. Following each lecture there have been calls for copies of the lecture for further study, and inquiries have been numerous from those not previously interested in Science for literature on the subject and for the textbook.
The Committee has had cause for much gratitude and rejoicing over the increased interest in its work, both inside and out of the prison walls and school grounds. This interest is evidenced by many loving contributions of books, subscriptions to periodicals, and money donated to them to assist in the work. Thanksgiving Day services were held in both institutions, followed by many interesting and helpful testimonies. Testimony meetings are held at the prison at intervals of about four months in place of the Sunday services, to give the men opportunity to tell of their healings and progress in Christian Science. These meetings are well attended and thoroughly enjoyed. Interest in the approaching lectures at the prison has been increased by appointing a lecture committee from among the student inmates.
