Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication for the Year Ended September 30, 1927
During the past official year there have been in the public press of Alberta frequent references to Christian Science of a kindly nature. In this period there have been few adverse references. Only two replies to incorrect statements in newspapers have been necessary during the year, and both of these were duly published. One of our city newspapers, which publishes each day at the top of its editorial page a brief passage from Scripture, requested that such quotations be provided by the Christian Scientists, as well as by the clergymen of other denominations. Two lists, containing suitable quotations, have been handed to this newspaper, and these quotations are being published in their turn. It has been pleasant to contrast the nature of the arrangements to have these quotations published with some former experiences in the same newspaper office when misrepresentations were being corrected. This newspaper regularly reprints, with due credit, articles or portions of articles from the Christian Science Sentinel and from The Christian Science Monitor.
The editor of another daily newspaper in Alberta, who is in the habit of publishing on the last day of each year a New Year's message, written usually by a local clergyman, requested a message from the Christian Scientists for last New Year. A clipping of a religious article from The Christian Science Monitor, entitled "On the Turning of a New Leaf," was sent from this office, and it was published on the front page of the newspaper on December 31, 1926. The fairer representation which Christian Science is now receiving in the press of this province affords good reason for gratitude. Your committee had occasion to pay two visits to a clergyman who had publicly announced his intention to deliver a sermon on the subject of Christian Science. While the reverend gentleman gave his sermon apparently as he had originally intended, he concluded with a prayer that he might be forgiven if he had said anything that was unjust to Christian Science. A number of inquiries for fuller information about Christian Science, received from those who listened to this sermon, indicated that his unintentional advertising of Christian Science has had a result which he probably had not expected. Assistants also have visited clergymen whenever the need has arisen to do so, and there is evidence that much good is being accomplished in this way.
