Item of Interest

The radiocasting of church services, lectures, and devotional programs has met with encouraging response quite generally in the Field.

Those who are unable to attend church services particularly appreciate the radiocasting of these services, and it has introduced our religion to many others, as evidenced by letters of appreciation which have been received. Observation of this activity over a number of years indicates that at present the best interest of the Cause of Christian Science is served where a Christian Science church broadcasts not more than two Sunday services each month.

Special devotional programs, presented under the supervision of Committees on Publication, are leavening public thought in regard to our organization, our religion, and our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, as shown by a very considerable number of messages of commendation. It is desirable, however, that continuous effort be made to improve these programs by choosing the readers from among experienced Christian Scientists whose voices register acceptably through the microphone. It is desirable also that these programs be allocated so as to avoid the overlapping of their audiences so far as feasible. If, for instance, such programs are being radiocast from a station which is actively serving a wide area, similar programs should not be radiocast from other stations serving substantial portions of the same area. Experience indicates that not more than three devotional programs a week should be presented in any vicinity.
