THE LECTURES

Miss Mary Brookins of Minneapolis lectured for First Church of Christ, Scientist, March 15, before a fair-sized audience in the Congregational church. She was introduced by the Congregational minister, who said in part,—

It affords me the greatest pleasure to stand identified this evening with this great modern movement called Christian Science. I have watched with much interest its rapid development. This great movement has in it the spirit and teachings of the great Master; therefore it must prosper and grow in spite of the scoffing and ridicule of the superficial thinker. When the winter frosts and storms come upon us in this northern climate of ours, many poor sick men and women wend their way to California, and there find quiet and rest and health which could not possibly be had here. The orange grove could not possibly look luxuriant and be beautiful and fruitful in our Minnesota, but in California, under the glorious sun and balmy air, the orange grows in all its lusciousness and abundance, and then is sent out to bless the world. So thousands of our fellows in all walks of life have found balm and healing and comfort in Christian Science, and to-day are living beautiful and successful lives because its great teachings have come into their heart and life. It has been a California to many a sick soul. I know it will grow and prosper just as it emulates the teachings of the great Master.
