Thursday evening [Oct. 15] at Brattle Hall, Bliss Knapp delivered a lecture on Christian Science. The lecture was repeated the following evening at the same place, and there were large audiences on both occasions. In introducing the lecturer, John Ellis Sedman, First Reader of the church, spoke in part as follows:—

Christian Scientists are convinced that God does not send afflictions upon His people, and they have learned, furthermore, that God so loves the world that He has provided a way of escape from disease, sin, grief, and fear, which is available now just as it was in the time of Moses or Elijah, Jesus or Paul. Jesus once said, "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" David sang, "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases." Solomon said, "The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it." And Paul wrote to Timothy: "God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

Christian Scientists are finding the fulfilment of these grand promises in their own lives. They know that you can lay hold on them and see them fulfilled in your lives. They rest assured of the fulfilment of all the promises, some day, somewhere, somehow, in the full redemption of the whole world. Is it not natural, then, that Christian Scientists should enjoy a large measure of hope and peace and joy?—Cambridge Chronicle.
