Activities for the Armed Services

An important duty of the field workers of Christian Science Activities for the Armed Services is welcoming new arrivals at military installations and acquainting them with local Christian Science activities. The Christian Science Minister at an Air Force base in California reports a call he made on a sergeant because he stated Christian Science as his religious preference. Actually he knew nothing of its teachings and confessed that he had never been in a church of any kind in his life.

When invited by the Minister to attend the next service at the base, he did so and became a regular attendant. Later he went with the Minister to a few Christian Science lectures, and the two men had some inspiring talks about God and man. After leaving for an overseas assignment, the sergeant wrote the Minister to express thanks for his healing, while stationed at the base, of a desire to drink alcoholic beverages. In his letter he explained that he had been drinking a lot when he first came, but that after studying Christian Science he stopped drinking entirely.
