The Christian Science Organization in a large western university reports: A new Reader of our organization, sincerely desiring to serve well, felt his reading lacked the full freedom and spontaneity it should manifest. Various suggestions of error seemed to limit his capacities. Awakened to the need of guarding against these invading suggestions, the Reader began denying their power and presence whenever they appeared. He saw too that they were false suggestions aimed at the organization as a whole, and so he commenced to do more careful protective work. The intruding suggestions were gradually replaced with spiritual ideas, and wonderful freedom resulted for the Reader. The report also noted improved fruitage from the organization's testimony meetings.

The Christian Science Organization at the University of Tennessee was established in 1953 when a few Christian Science students united to conduct testimony meetings on the campus. They felt the need to acquaint other students and faculty within the university with Christian Science. The organization reports: The first year took a great deal of patience, and at times our meeting room for services was shifted from place to place, in spite of all our careful arrangements. Prayerful thought was given to this situation, and gradually there was improvement. We are now provided with a room in the new University of Tennessee Student Center Building, which is centrally located within the campus. The room meets our needs in every way, and a piano and lectern are furnished for our meetings.
