THE LECTURES

The Grand Theater at Blackpool was crowded to its utmost capacity on Sunday afternoon last [Nov. 26], when a lecture on Christian Science was delivered by William D. McCrackan, M.A. Dr. Gilbert J. Fowler of Manchester occupied the chair, and in introducing the lecturer said he counted it a privilege to take even a small part in what was known as the Christian Science movement. When he first began to be seriously interested in Christian Science, his attitude was one of skepticism not unmixed with contempt. But, as he learned more and more of what Christian Science really meant, he found that the criticisms which he had read and heard from men whose opinions he respected were not criticisms of Christian Science at all, but what the critic thought Christian Science to be. In natural science—for example, in chemistry—if they wished to demonstrate the truth of a proposition, they put it to the test of experiment.

"I can honestly say," he proceeded, "that Christian Science will stand that test. I have found that it can help in every relation of life—in every detail, from the smallest to the greatest. I have found that it satisfies the highest claim of the intellectual and of the spiritual nature. It is so vast that the wisest man cannot get to the end of it, and yet it is so simple that the child can understand it. I count it, therefore, of the highest importance to every one of us that we should have opportunity to learn what Christian Science really is."—Blackpool Times and Fylde Observer.
