The service room in the new Christian Science buildings, Uplands, was filled to overflowing on March 6, on the occasion of a lecture by Bicknell  Young. The audience was very attentive and the interest was well maintained. The lecturer was introduced by Henry Benner, formerly of Swansea and now First Reader of Brixton, London, Christian Science society, who said in part,—

It is my privilege to offer you, on behalf of the Swansea Christian Science society, a most cordial welcome in their new hall to the first lecture on Christian Science delivered in Wales by an authorized lecturer of the organization. Christian Science at the present time is claiming the attention and occupying the thought of thinking people throughout Christendom. Humanity had always been asking, What is life? Where does it come from? Whither does it go? The answer to the latter could be found when they knew the answer to the first, What is life?

On the arch above my head you may read the words: "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." Those words were uttered by the great Teacher, the Saviour, Jesus Christ. The explanation in Christian Science of this utterance is contained in the extract from the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, which will also be observed on the wall of this building, "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need."
