THE NEW YORK CHURCHES



   My Beloved Students: - According to reports, the
belief is springing up among you that the several
churches in New York City should come together and
form one church.  This is a suggestion of error, which
should be silenced at its inception.  You cannot have lost
sight of the rules for branch churches as published in our
Church Manual.  The Empire City is large, and there
should be more than one church in it.
   The Readers of The Church of Christ, Scientist, hold
important, responsible offices, and two individuals would
meet meagrely the duties of half a dozen or more of the
present incumbents.  I have not yet had the privilege of
knowing two students who are adequate to take charge
of three or more churches.  The students in New York
and elsewhere will see that it is wise to remain in their
own fields of labor and give all possible time and attention
to caring for their own flocks.
