The Lecture and the Field

With great wisdom the successive stages of the Christian Science movement have been inaugurated by our Leader. Instituted at times and on occasions opportune and auspicious, they have summoned to their fulfilment the voluntary, unconstrained co-operation of Scientists as individuals and as a body. Mrs. Eddy has nobly performed her share in indicating what is to be done, and it is due to her from us to see that what we do is done well.

The establishment of the Board of Lectureship is a case in point. Among the various media that are at the disposal of the Field for the public dissemination of Christian Science, our lectures in some respects afford the greatest possibilities. A lecture seldom falls on unwilling ears; it is always an authoritative presentation of Christian Science; it is readily conformable to the needs of the hour; it attains the most effective form of publicity, drawing audiences that in point of size and quality are convincing object-lessons to the observing world, and it receives a generous share of attention from the press which is far-reaching in its effects. In view of these and other facts it is to be seen that our lectures are doing valiant service.
