Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication


During the past year thirty-eight newspapers have published excerpts of our Lesson-Sermons weekly with reasonable regularity. This represents an increase of six papers over last year. Forty-nine papers published excerpts of the Thanksgiving Day Lesson-Sermon, including a brief account of the occasion. Twenty-four papers published an editorial from the Monitor, entitled "The Healing Art Progresses," sent out by this office. Five hundred and eighteen reprints from The Christian Science Monitor were published voluntarily in the papers in the state, an increase of one hundred and seventy-five over last year. The Christian Science Monitor has made friends for Christian Science of many editors in the state, and has thus been a very important factor in the progress which has been made in disseminating Christian Science through the press.

There were some misrepresentations of and injustices to our Leader in sermons, which were not published in the press. It is encouraging to state in this connection that an Episcopal minister, at the close of his sermon on Good Friday, is reported to have said, "We owe much thanks to Mary Baker Eddy for giving us the wonderful definition of atonement."
