The Lectures

More than five hundred people attended the lecture given in the Opera House, Thursday evening [November 3], by Bicknell Young of Chicago. Mr. Young was introduced by Rev. Samuel Pearson, pastor of the First Congregational Church, who spoke in part as follows:—

Christian Science has passed through the initial stages peculiar to all religious movements, and its influence cannot be measured by figures. Thoughtful, devout minds are seeking for whatever permanent contribution Christian Science has to make to the established beliefs of Christendom. The Christian Science church has emphasized the study of the Bible, prayer, and experience or testimony. These three features of the new church are not new, but have been peculiar to the history of the Christian church in its several divisions, but there is a peculiar revival of interest in these particulars, under this church's insistence. As a humble follower of Jesus, with many others present, I come with an open mind to hear from one who is competent and authorized, an exposition of the faith and Principle of Christian Science. It is with sincere pleasure I introduce to you the lecturer of the evening.
