From the February 1891 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Christian Science in St. Joseph is slowly but surely gaining a firm foothold, and many who a year or six months ago were bitterly opposed, are now reaching out for the Truth. The growth is permanent, because most all are glad to follow the way laid down in Science and Health, p. 511, last two lines to p. 512 line 18. 'Tis Error that says we will not call it Christian Science, but call it Truth; that there are other books that are just as good as Science and Health. These are the tares that are being sown by the enemy. The article in Jan'y Journal, "Moses and Aaron," ought to be read and pondered by every one. Those who desire to keep posted, keep pace with the advancement in Christian Science, cannot afford to be without the Journal, the Series and the Lesson Quarterlies. They are indispensable to our growth in Science—especially the Quarterlies. In our meetings, the lessons are written out, and each one is given opportunity to express ideas; which is far better than any sermon that could be preached. The fruits are seen in demonstration by all over false sense of self. These meetings have been started of late in several adjoining towns, where there has been steady increase in numbers and interest. Truly the cry of warning is to-day: "To your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house." The rule in these meetings is to give notice each Sunday, that subscriptions for publications of the Christian Science Publishing Society will be received and forwarded. The Journal has been put on sale here at the bookstores.—

During the past six months we have witnessed a steady growth in Truth. The latter part of October we had a class taught. Since then we have met on Sundays to study the Bible Lessons, and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, to study Science and Health. We invite all inquirers to come to these meetings and partake, with us, of the bread of life. We find these meetings to be, indeed, a great help to spiritual growth. The students that went through the class have had good demonstration and are following closely "the day star of Divine Science." We are preparing to have another class taught about January first, and think then to organize an association, to promote unity. We could not get along without the Journal and Series.
