An audience of about three hundred people listened to a lecture by Judge Septimus J. Hanna on Christian Science April 26 at the Opera House. The lecturer was introduced by Judge Fred S. Lamb, who said in part,—
The trend of Christian thought to-day is towards less of theory and more of truth. That truth and theory may be and often are united, is beyond question; but that theories have been expounded without even the semblance of truth is abundantly exemplified in the history of the past. The constant groping for truth in its highest sense, regardless of its effect on established tenets and dogmas connected with our faith in a definite religion, has culminated in a broader view of the essential truths underlying moral and spiritual life. Viewing things from this broader plane has brought us to realize not only the singleness of truth, but also its various manifestations, and we are being brought to realize that there is more than a spirit of tolerance towards these manifestations, which argues well for the ultimate triumph of truth.
No doubt you who have come here to-night to hear this lecture represent almost every phase of Christian thought. You are here for a purpose,—to listen to the thoughts and views of another; to accept or reject his conclusions according to your light. Viewed from the standards of Christian Science I should be classed as an heretic, for I have never given the matter any serious consideration; but I do say that any system, either religious or secular, which can shed any ray of hope upon any life, or lift the dark veil of error from any soul, is entitled to our consideration.—Correspondence.
