Under the heading "Twilight Mood" a report appeared in a recent issue of the News of a sermon delivered in St. Peter's Cathedral by an archdeacon, in which disparaging references were made to Christian Science. The statements made were so unloving in spirit and so contrary to the views held by many prominent Anglicans, that I submit this letter for the information of your readers.

The sermon deals, generally, with laxity of life and morals at the present day, and then, after referring to Christian Science (bracketed with theosophy and spiritualism, to which it is utterly opposed), continues with the astonishing statement from a Christian pulpit regarding another Christian religion: "In the wake of faiths so vague and unreal the foes of morals followed closely, bringing with them alleged self-expression, free love, and exploitation." In direct conflict with this assertion is the following excerpt from the Encyclical Letter issued by the archbishops and bishops assembled in the Lambeth Conference of 1920: "There is much in Christian Science which ought to be found within the Church." Surely what ought to be found in the Anglican church must be good!

We'd love to hear from you!
