From the Field
[From the Report of the Christian Science Prison Committee for the State of New York]
In rendering its report of the progress of Christian Science work in the New York state prisons for the year 1928, the Prison Committee desires to thank the Christian Science churches and societies of the state and individual Christian Scientists for the constant support and cooperation which it is receiving from them. The work has continued in an orderly manner, and regular Christian Science services have been conducted each Sunday at the following state institutions: Auburn Prison for Men, Auburn Prison for Women, Clinton Prison, Great Meadow Prison, Sing Sing Prison, Elmira Reformatory. At most of these places a monthly testimony meeting is also held; and on this occasion the majority of the testimonies are given by the inmates, who tell freely and gratefully of the benefits, mental, moral, and physical, which they have derived from the study and application of the teachings of Christian Science. To the state penal and correctional institutions we are sending the following subscriptions to Christian Science periodicals: The Christian Science Journal, 15; Christian Science Sentinel, 72; Christian Science Quarterly, 342; Le Héraut de Christian Science, 1; The Christian Science Monitor, 199. Within the last three months two released inmates,—a man and a woman,—who are now under the parole supervision of the committee, have sent to the office money for annual subscriptions for themselves to all of the Christian Science periodicals printed in English. These two are earning a good livelihood in positions which they secured for themselves, and are earnest students of Christian Science, which was brought to them in the prisons. Many others are proving conclusively to us that this activity is indeed worth while.
Five Christian Science lectures were delivered at these institutions during the year 1928. Healing of various forms of error is continually occurring. Inmates are being freed from bitterness, discouragement, dishonesty, and sinful desires and habits, as well as from physical troubles. Many of the inmates attending the Christian Science services have been selected for positions of trust in the institutions, so proving that the effort to live according to the teachings of Christian Science makes them more dependable and trustworthy.
