Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication
An editor was complimented for publishing one of our Leader's poems, and at the same time good-naturedly chided for inadvertently omitting the credit line. He replied substantially as follows: "We appreciated so very much the kindly spirit of your letter reminding us that we had used Mrs. Eddy's poem without using her name or that of the Monitor. Please be assured that it was an error in this office, and not intentional. All of us here are deeply sorry that the credit line failed to appear. I was impressed with the poem when it appeared in the Monitor a year ago, or perhaps it was several years ago, and put it in my file. We tell one another in the office that we 'steal' more things from the Monitor than from any other magazine or newspaper, but we had felt that we used the expression in jest, since we always give credit. It seems that in this case we were coming close to the naked truth. I never open the Monitor in the evenings but that I am impressed with the enterprise and the high standards of journalism in it. No newspaper is its equal and we wish more persons were familiar with it. We shall do our part to tell them about it, we assure you."
The Committee was invited to talk on Christian Science before the Young People's Forum of South Shore Presbyterian Church of Chicago. Another talk on Christian Science was given before a large audience in a Congregational church in Galesburg on the evening of Sunday, December 10, 1934. The pastor extended the invitation. He opened the meeting with silent prayer followed by audible prayer, in which he asked divine blessing on "those who approach God from other avenues."
