At the lecture on Christian Science which was given by Virgil O. Strickler, he was introduced by Miss Mabel A. Gorton, first reader, who said in part,—

The lecture to be delivered on Christian Science is planned to satisfy the inquirer's thought with a positive answer, to meet the truth. In an issue of the Youth's Companion several years ago, I remember having read this statement: "When you look through a red glass, everything looks red. When you look through a blue glass, everything looks blue. When you see faults in other people, perhaps they're in you." Such was the case with most of us before Christian Science came to our thought; we saw only sin and suffering about us, with no way of escape, because we were looking upon the universe through the red lens of envy, jealousy, and hatred, or the blue lens of fear, doubt, and despair.

When Christian Science—or, to use the definition thereof as given by its Discoverer and Founder, Mrs. Eddy, when "the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony" (Rudimental Divine Science, p. I)—is revealed to mankind, then God, good, is found to be the sole cause and creator and the universe His good creation. Our Master, Christ Jesus, taught that this knowledge constituted the kingdom of heaven, which he said was within men. Of this kingdom and its establishment among men here and now, the lecturer is prepared to tell us.—Correspondence.
