The Monitor received a large number of letters in response to the April 16 editorial, written by the Monitor's editor, that discussed recent controversies concerning the Christian Science Church's media activities. Here is a representative sampling:
Regarding the editorial "The Church as a Community" in the April 16 edition, I marvel at how you have addressed the concerns of our [church] membership while reaching out to the community as a whole. As one who strongly endorses the need for publishing the Monitor in all media formats, I applaud your invitation to all members for deeper commitment to the publishing work which Mary Baker Eddy launched for all mankind. Our dedicated [Christian Science Board of] Directors should have our unconditional suppo rt as they carry out her mandate. John L. Chittleborough, Dallas
