The Lectures

Nearly a thousand persons attended the lecture on Christian Science delivered last evening [ June 21 ] in the Wysor Grand Theatre by Judge Septimus J. Hanna of Colorado Springs, Colorado, He was introduced by Attorney James Bingham, who said in part,—

In these days of commercialism, when greed and avarice are absorbing all conscience, when heart and soul count for nothing, and that is not valued which can be obtained without price, it is well that people should pause and consult that true monitor of every human being, the life and teachings of our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ, and are glad to know that there are still those who are devoted to teaching and exemplifying them in the midst of all this strife for material welfare. While I am without the temple and cannot speak authoritatively of your creed, I am advised that Christian Scientists are pledged "to love one another; and to be meek, merciful, just, and pure" [Science and Health, p. 497]; that within the sacred precincts of your church its members are taught to drink from the refreshing fountain of human sympathy that ever waters the sweet flowers of friendship and brotherly love; to be mild of temper, humble, submissive, gentle, merciful, and just to all the world, and to be pure in spirit. These are God's teachings and after God's own words. These are the fundamental teachings of all true Christian Scientists, and your conscientious devotion to these obligations means the uplifting of all mankind, and all right-thinking men and women will bid you Godspeed in this noble work.
