Of Good Report

Written reports that have been submitted from numerous Christian Scientists in Germany contain many accounts of protection and support realized during the recent years of persecution and hardship. The wonderful help received during these years through their understanding of Christian Science has convinced them that in spite of evidence to the contrary God is ever present and available to all who pray to Him for help and guidance. This assurance fills them with gratitude, as well as with courage and confidence to face the many problems that still confront them. Although the way before them seems to be a long and uphill climb, they are eager to tread it, being assured of God's guidance and sustaining power.

The representative of The Christian Science Board of Directors sent to Germany some months ago did much to help The Mother Church take steps for the re-establishment of churches, societies, and practitioners under the Rules of our Church Manual. The understanding and sympathy of military and civilian authorities were enlisted in procuring proper facilities for services, Reading Rooms, Sunday Schools, and practitioners' offices.

In most cases the buildings in which these activities were formerly carried on were completely destroyed, but it was gratifying to see to what a large extent and how relatively quickly it was possible to move the services from private homes to more suitable quarters. Museums and schools were made available for services and Sunday Schools to practically all former branch organizations, and to some new ones that had sprung up here and there. The housing shortage was becoming more acute every week by the constant influx of displaced persons and evacuees from areas formerly belonging to Germany, but through individual demonstration of God's provision for man several practitioners obtained suitable quarters to take care of their practice.
