HOW A SMALL CHURCH IN THE WEST DEMONSTRATED A LECTURE
In a small town in central Colorado, where Christian Science services have been held for some time past, Mr. Edward A. Kimball of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, recently delivered his lecture by request. In view of a reference in a late number of the Christian Science Weekly to the fact that a large section of the Field has not yet awakened to the importance of these lectures, as evidenced by the few calls made, it may be of interest to know how a young group of Scientists in the West, realizing the good to be derived therefrom, secured a lecture by demonstration in face of serious obstacles.
The church in question was organized last March, has at present twelve members, with an average attendance of about thirty-five at each service. When the Board of Lectureship was established, the matter of securing a lecturer was quietly talked over among the members, and while all agreed as to its expediency, the difficulties in the way were so formidable as to make it seem out of the question. Nevertheless, all were advised to handle the matter wholly in Science, not to admit, even mentally, that it could not be done, but to leave it with Principle—Good—and to know that error could not hinder the voicing of Truth.
It was made plain to all that the lecture would be far reaching in its results, that it would not only bring more light to those already in Science, but that it would be the instrument of turning the thoughts of others to a consideration of the Truth, that it would correct wrong impressions, dispel prejudices, and place our religion on a firmer footing in the community. Unselfishness was made the controlling motive, and the thought prevailed that "this lecture will help others who are now indifferent, or perhaps antagonistic, to Science, and who need it as badly as any of us."
