Consciousness of Good Within and Practical Proof Without Are One

On page 207 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, declares, "The spiritual reality is the scientific fact in all things." The experience of a Christian Science Society in Indiana shows what can be accomplished by a branch church membership when the claims of evil appearing specifically as apathy and stagnation are reversed and the spiritual facts of Church are realized.

For three years the society had very few members. There was a small attendance at the Sunday services and a much smaller attendance at the Wednesday evening testimony meetings. Sometimes months elapsed between the meetings of the executive board. Two sets of bylaws were in circulation among the members, and there was no record of which set was in effect.

The church edifice was small, and its interior was finished a dark green. The Reading Room located in the rear of the church was sufficient for literature sales but inadequate for study. Only one pupil was enrolled in the Sunday School, and the Sunday School was not listed in the Card Directory of The Christian Science Journal.
