The Lectures

Mr. Carol Norton, C.S.D., of New York City, a distinguished Christian Scientist, lectured to a large and representative audience in Massey Hall, Friday evening, May 26. At a conservative estimate twenty-eight hundred people were in attendance. Mayor Shaw presided, and from his introductory address it must be inferred that his Worship has not only studied the tenets of Christian Science but is a believer therein.

To the believers in the audience, as well as to those who were present from mere desire to hear what Mr. Norton had to say, the lecture proved of exceptional interest. His address was entitled, "Christian Science alias the Healing and Saving Power of Christianity." He spoke clearly and dispassionately, and made no attack upon other religions or creeds. He laid down the principle that Christian Science is not the discovery of a new thing so much as the recovery of a temporarily lost element of the Christian religion, and upon this basis he proceeded to place concisely before his hearers the authorities upon which the religion is founded.
