Contrary to the views reported in your article "Ailing Mother Church" (RELIGION, Jan. 30), the Church of Christ, Scientist, is alive and kicking. Far from decline in financial support of the Church by Christian Scientists, individual contributions in the past five years have increased substantially. Far from monthly cases of local churches severing their ties with the Mother organization, only two churches anywhere in the world have done so since 1950. Not a single existing branch church has come out in support of the disgruntled few. Some local churches have disbanded over the years for lack of members, but it falsifies the situation to ignore all evidence of new growth and vitality as well as of continuing unity.
