Attention is called to the illustrated article regarding the Christian Science Benevolent Association Sanatorium now being erected in San Francisco, which was published in The Christian Science Monitor of August 2. It gave up-to-date information concerning the progress of the building which called for an expenditure during July of eighty-six thousand dollars. It is gratifying to note that contributions for this project are coming into The Mother Church treasury from many individuals and churches in all parts of the globe; and a large number of associations of pupils in Christian Science, which hold their annual meetings at this season of the year, are sending generous amounts. Approximately five hundred thousand dollars will be needed to complete the sanatorium, exclusive of furniture, furnishings, and grounds improvement. The uninterrupted progress of the work depends upon the continued generous support of Christian Scientists.
Since there have been more pupils in attendance than could be accommodated in the Sunday school of the Extension, The Mother Church Sunday School for some years has met in two sessions held simultaneously. One session has been held in the original church, and the Superintendent and an assistant superintendent have alternated in opening and closing the two sessions. Another division has now been made for the smallest children, who meet in rooms in the Extension adjacent to the Sunday School room. The sessions continue throughout the summer.
Among the pupils are some very small and very young; yet they learn something of the lessons of God, good, and often are known to have carried these lessons home to parents or to have imparted them to friends and playmates. Seldom does The Mother Church Sunday School find itself obliged to turn away an applicant because of previous religious association or for other reasons. Properly, the wishes of parents or legal guardians are considered, but occasionally children apply for admission whose parents or guardians are indifferent, though not opposed to their admission. A letter of consent from an absent parent who is not a Christian Scientist is usually obtained when the child or the other parent is desirous of the child's admission.
