"THEY SHALL BE FILLED"

One Sunday it was my privilege to listen to a scholarly lecture on Christian Science given at Los Angeles. I reached the auditorium (which holds between three and four thousand people) at a quarter before two, yet, although the hour of the lecture was three o'clock, several hundred people had already assembled there and others were coming from all directions, an hour and a quarter before the time, in order to get a seat!

As I looked about me, there were some people with crutches, some had sad and careworn faces, and there were many with happy countenances, but all were eager to have the doors opened—for what? To hear a great singer? No! To hear a great orator? No! The Master's words, "What went ye out for to see?" came to my mind, and I mentally questioned, What went ye out for to hear? All these people had gathered to listen to a messenger with a message, one who would tell of the omnipresent power of the word of God (rightly understood) to heal all our diseases, to bring, as did the heralds of old, "good things of great joy."
