Giving a Christian Science Lecture

The giving of a Christian Science lecture is an important event in the history of each branch church, and the arrangements call for careful thought. It is the occasion on which the members get into intimate touch with the public, and the visible manifestation is the church acting as host with the public in the position of invited guests.

Looking at the undertaking in a superficial manner, we have a Church of Christ, Scientist, deciding on a date, inviting a lecturer, preparing a building, and bidding the public attend the lecture. The hall of course is to be clean and well lighted, with comfortable seats. The ushers are to be in their places, and the distribution of literature satisfactorily arranged for. The invitation to the public by the means advised by the board of lectureship must be ample and attractive, and the platform tastefully fitted up; then, all arrangements having been completed, the lecturer is expected to appear.
