THE LECTURES

Frank H. Leonard delivered a lecture on Christian Science for the Oconomowoc Christian Science society in the Autitorium to an attentive audience. The speaker was introduced by the Rev. A. W. Stephens, pastor of the First Baptist church, who said in part,—

A member of this society asked me to preside and introduce the lecturer of the evening. Somehow it became known to the public, and a friend who met me on the street wanted to know how it was that I was to introduce a Christian Science lecturer. I replied, "First, because I believe that they are Christians; second, because I do not believe that any sect has a monopoly of divine truth; and third, because they are trying to do as the great Teacher taught us all to do and was concerned about, and that was to think, to love, to live. Jesus knew what many a professor of religion never seems to learn, namely, that a degree of clear thinking is absolutely essential to loving and living, and Jesus' method was the method which stimulates thought."
