Christian Science Services on Shiproard

In the Sentinel of April 30, 1955, attention was drawn to the opportunity afforded Christian Scientists who travel on ocean-going liners to take healing and comfort to others through a Christian Science service held on shipboard.

Application for the privilege of holding such services should be made to the purser of the ship. One usually finds that he is pleased to allot a time and place for the service to be held and to put a notice on the bulletin boards.

Christian Scientists who take the initiative in this matter should be familiar with the order of the Sunday services and the Wednesday testimony meetings, given in the Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy (see pages 120-122). If it is not possible, however, to arrange for the singing of a solo at the Sunday service, item No. 6 of the Order of Services would have to be omitted.
