Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

The newspapers and periodicals in this state continue to give us their support in publishing many items furnished by our office as well as by quoting directly from the columns of The Christian Science Monitor. About one hundred and fifty newspapers receive each week from our office excerpts from the current Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly. These excerpts consist of a selection from the Bible and a correlative passage from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. They not only awaken an interest in our religion, but also help to convince the stranger that we read the authorized King James Version of the Bible.

Each year we find that our churches and societies are receiving more invitations to participate in other Protestant church activities. A former Reader was asked to conduct the devotional exercises at a monthly meeting of the Mothers' Club of the Fisher Branch of the Y. M. C. A., Detroit. The Assistant Committee at Mt. Morris was asked to lead in silent prayer and the audible repetition of the Lord's Prayer at a "World's Day of Prayer" service. On April 10, First Church of Christ, Scientist, Oxford, participated in a Good Friday service of the Protestant churches. References were read from the Bible and from our textbook on the subject of "Resurrection."

On June 1, the Committee on Publication gave an address to the Girls' Friendly Society, Lansing.
