Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication
Some months ago the author of an article in a London weekly magazine wrote: "There is a great paradox in the religious life of England today. It is the fact that, whilst there seems to be a deeper, keener, more vital and more widely diffused interest in religion than has been the case for centuries, only one person in every five of the population is connected even nominally with any church."
While it would not be right to place a construction on an incident which it might not bear, it is interesting to note that a large London newspaper recently created the post of Religious Editor on the grounds that "religion is news."
Last November a conference was called of representatives from local education authorities, the universities, training college staffs, and other branches of the teaching profession to discuss the question of providing teachers with improved opportunities for equipping themselves for giving religious instruction. Referring to this report part of a recent editorial in The Guardian reads as follows: "There are many signs of a growing conviction that the improvement and enlargement of religious teaching are urgent duties if the bases of national life are to be preserved." On the publication of the report an editorial writer in The Times wrote: "Today people see . . . that good citizenship demands some spiritual equipment, and that any scheme of national education which omits religion must be educationally defective."
