The largest crowd ever assembled in the Overholser Opera House of this city listened to a lecture on Christian Science, by Mr. Bicknell Young of Chicago, Sunday afternoon. As elucidated by Mr. Young, Christian Science is a religion of love,—the love of God with all your heart, and your brother as yourself. It is a religion of life and hope and trust and peace, with no room in its sunny, hopeful tenets for disease, or despair, or death. God, good, is recognized as the only cause and the only effect, and the existence of evil, whether of mind or body, but the cheap delusion of a moral sense that has strayed from the great Principle.
Whatever people may ignorantly conceive Christian Science to be, those who heard Mr. Young's simple and appealing explanation could not conscientiously urge one objection to a faith which only asks that you allow it to do for you what it has done for others, a faith that loves humanity so deeply and truly that forgetting the scoffing it asks only in humility and pity that you but taste of its healing waters; asks but that you give it a personal test and a personal study and take or leave it on its merits. Not a word of bitterness, not a word of censure, not a word of discouragement was uttered. There was no impassioned oratory, no flights of fancy. It was simply one man standing and delivering his message to a waiting brotherhood. And the message was laden with love and faith and peace.
