The Lectures

Every seat in the Universalist church was filled at the lecture on Christian Science given by Bicknell Young. In introducing the lecturer, W. F. Stanton, first reader, spoke as follows:—

History teaches us that ever since the beginning of time, man has been conscious of the existence of a power which has been more than human; but owing to his inability to discern spiritual good through the material senses, he has not always comprehended its source, and for this reason he has often been misled and limited in his knowledge of God. We read in "The Acts of the Apostles" that when the apostle Paul visited Athens he found there an altar erected and dedicated "to the unknown God." Paul told the people of Athens that the God whom they ignorantly worshiped was the only creator, and that He was not far from any one of them. "For," said he, "in him we live, and move, and have our being." Christian Science declares again to the world today that God is the only creator; that He is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient, in that He is Life, Truth, and Love.—Correspondence.
