In the summer of 1906, Christian Scientists were gathering to celebrate the dedication of the Extension of The Mother Church. Even newspaper reports of the day seemed to catch the spirit of something more going on than just the gathering of an estimated thirty to forty thousand Christian Scientists in Boston for the various events. The Boston Herald wrote:
“Five thousand people kneeling in silent communion; a stillness profound; and then, rising in unison from the vast congregation, the words of the Lord’s Prayer!…
“It was a sight which no one who saw it will ever be able to forget.… There was something emanating from the thousands who worshipped under the dome of the great edifice whose formal opening they had gathered to observe, that appealed to and fired the imagination. A comparatively new religion launching upon a new era, assuming an altogether different status before the world!” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 29).
