Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication for the Year Ended September 30, 1926


Christian Scientists in this field rejoice in the realization that our Cause has prospered. Under God's protecting care the Church of Christ, Scientist, in Illinois has pressed onward and upward. A substantial increase in membership is reported throughout the state. Churches in Charleston, Harvey, and Princeton have been reorganized from societies. A society has been organized at Northwestern University, in Evanston. These churches and the society have been recognized by The Christian Science Board of Directors.

A noticeable decrease in the number of letters needed to correct impositions and injustice in newspapers has been observed. I feel that our renewed efforts to gain the respect and confidence of the editors of the secular press have met with hearty response. We have approached these men and women of the public press with Christ's charity in our hearts. We have witnessed seeming barriers of misunderstanding crumble and the right hand of fellowship extended. Cordial support in the form of generous space for our lecture reports and church announcements has rewarded our loving labors. The friendly relations now maintained with editors have taught them to distinguish between the followers of Mrs. Eddy who furnish genuine Christian Science copy to the reading public, and false claimants of Christian Science who submit articles of misrepresentation and opposition. Many editors may be depended upon to delete misleading references to our religion appearing in press dispatches and other syndicated copy.
