The Editors extend an invitation to individuals, branch churches, and societies for reports of fruitage from church work to be considered for this section. All manuscripts will be acknowledged.
A small but steady flow of such reports already comes in, and a percentage of these manuscripts have been published over the years. This invitation is given, however, for those who have not yet shared examples of spiritual good related to church activities. The Psalmist reminds us, "I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works." Ps. 9:1.
When Mary Baker Eddy received progress reports and fruitage from branches and groups of Christian Scientists, she often sent the material to the Editors for publication. In fact, the very first issue of the Christian Science Weekly (later named Christian Science Sentinel), dated September 1, 1898, contained a report on the dedication of a church in New Hampshire. The report, titled "Church Dedication at the White Mountains," included a letter from Mrs. Eddy to the church. This letter now appears in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, pp. 184-186.
