The Lectures

A lecture on Christian Science was delivered by Hon. Clarence A. Buskirk at the Kerr Opera House Tuesday evening [March 13]. He was introduced by Rev. Mr. Harrison of the Congregational church, who said in part, —

In the birth throes ushering in the religion and the life which is to be, there has been, and still is, and perhaps will be, struggle, conflict, pain: but, more and more, strife is giving way to sympathy, and across the chasm of our imperfect vision, our incomplete knowledge of the truth, we grasp hands, look into one another's faces and feel the thrill of each other's enthusiasm, and are repelled less by our differences than drawn by our mutual purposes, ideals, and inspirations.

What we need most swiftly to learn is the lesson of a simple and spiritual theology and a Christlike religion of love and sympathy and help; then we shall be prepared to grasp and handle the worldproblem of today, and share together in the saving work of the twentieth century.
