The Lectures

This field was richly entertained Sunday, September 17, by the presence and words of Edward A. Kimball, C.S.D. All Christian Scientists for miles around attended the meeting. A large company of people greeted the lecturer in the evening at the First Congregational Church, Where he was introduced to the audience by George N. Beels, C.S., in the following words:—

Friends:— It has been made my pleasant duty, as First Reader of the Christian Science Church, to preside over this meeting. You are the invited guests of First Church of Christ, Scientist, which holds its regular services in Odd Fellows Hall. The First Congregational Church, in a spirit of generosity and Christian courtesy, has kindly opened its doors for the discussion of a religion which has not yet been accepted by the world at large as strictly orthodox. We trust that you will be richly repaid for the little time in which we shall engage your attention.

Christian Science is the great question of the hour now engaging the attention of both philosophers and statesmen of all nations of the globe where civilization is respected. It recognizes neither caste, creed, nor distinction save a loyal obedience to the commands of Christ our Saviour and God our heavenly Father. Contrary to the olden time, the "wise men" of this age have seen its star of progress approaching from the West instead of from the East, in fulfilment of that Scripture which saith, "That they may know from the rising sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me."
