THE LECTURES

A large and representative audience greeted Bliss Knapp on his appearance in the Christian Science church on Mount Vernon street last Tuesday evening [Oct. 17]. Although the weather was unfavorable, the church was filled to its capacity. it speaks highly for the liberality of religious opinion prevailing in these days and in this section that members of other denominations, as well as those without church connection, were present in considerable numbers and among the most attentive listeners. The lecturer was introduced by John J. Flinn, of the editorial staff of The Christian Science Monitor, the newly elected first reader of the church, who said in part,—

The lecturer may justly claim the right to be heard by you, and I feel that I have the right to support his claim, because nearly eleven years ago I was raised out of disappointment and despair, out of sickness, sorrow, and suffering—out of the very jaws of death itself—speedily and securely, through the direct instrumentality of the cause for which he stands. How I and tens of thousands like me have been healed in Christian Science; what were the means by which the cruel illusions of existence were torn, like scales, from our eyes; by what process we were brought into at least a partial realization of the truth of being, the truth about God and the truth about man; how we have been enabled to taste somewhat of the beauty of life and the joy of living here and now—he can tell you much better than can I. I leave the recital of the wondrous story to him.
