Item of Interest
The Mother Church has for some time used the radio to send out on the air some of its services, lectures, and other programs, but only recently took up the use of the short wave. By this means over station WIXAL, Boston, both the morning and evening services of The Mother Church were radiocast on the first Sunday of the months of October, November, and December. This short wave station has also been used on Sunday afternoons weekly for a half-hour Christian Science program, the announcements of these radiocasts being published in The Christian Science Monitor. Listeners who have heard these programs will be interested to know that the Sunday services of The Mother Church will continue to be sent out on the first Sunday of each month over this station, and that the Sunday afternoon radiocasts likewise will continue every Sunday.
Listeners to these services and programs have written from England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, India, and almost every part of the United States. The reception has varied, as was explained in an article in the Weekly Magazine Section of the Monitor for September 25, 1935. A correspondent from Bombay, India, wrote that The Mother Church service "was superbly rendered and highly enjoyed." From a small town in Pennsylvania came a letter reading: "My heart is filled with thanks for the blessings the broadcasts of these Lesson-Sermons are bringing to me. Unfortunately I live too far away to attend the services of any of the branch churches, and for this reason I am so happy to know that I will have the opportunity to hear the Lesson-Sermons again in the future." A listener from England states, "I enjoyed the Christian Science service very much and I should like to know more about their activities."
Another, from Alabama, recounts his experience when he happened to turn his radio on the short-wave band and heard chimes. He states, "You can imagine the thrill I received when I heard them announce that the chimes were from The Mother Church."
