Christian Commonwealth

If anything were necessary to prove the vitality of the Christian Science movement, it could have been found in the fact that on a beautiful Saturday evening at the close of the coronation festivities Queen's Hall was packed from floor to ceiling with an audience bent on listening to a lecture on the subject. It was a deeply attentive and distinetly cultivated and thoughtful throng which followed the lecturer's remarks with manifest appreciation.

It was exactly half-past eight when a burst of applause greeted Oscar Browning and Bicknell Young as they walked on to the platform. Mr. Browning's introduction was brief. He expressed his sense of the great privilege of being permitted to take part in a meeting held in support of "the most powerful spiritual movement of modern times;" and went on to assure his listeners that, as he understood it, Christian Science was something far greater than a means of enabling "the world to dispense with doctors and medicines;" it was, of course, a road to the attainment of physical health, but it was even more "a fundamental basis of morality, a guidance in the conduct of life, a morality founded on Love, a course of life based on the omnipotence of Spirit and the nothingness of materiality."
