The Lectures

Chamber of Commerce Hall was completely filled yesterday afternoon [May 15] by an audience which had gathered to hear Frank H. Leonard of New York, deliver a lecture on the nature and workings of Christian Science. He was introduced by Rev. Minot O. Simons, pastor of the Unitarian Church, who said in part,—

"As an old church father expressed it, 'The soul divines what is divine.' I believe that is true. And I believe that the divine resources are so truly inexhaustible that some aspect of the truth is presented to every soul that seeks. To every human spirit comes the promise, 'But if from thence that shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.' "

"Now are we not all seeking? Are we not all searching for the way, the truth, the life divine? Indeed, that is always my assumption when I find myself in the presence of earnest truth-seekers who fear not heresy. I assume it now. In so far as you are seeking for the way, you have my heartiest 'God speed.' In so far as you have found it, you have my sincere congratulations."
