The Lectures

Clarence W. Chadwick delivered three lectures on Christian Science in the auditorium of First Church of Christ, Scientist. On each of these occasions the seating capacity of the auditorium was taxed to its utmost and hundreds were turned away. The great number of strangers and the large proportion of men were noticeable features, and a markedly close and absorbed attention was paid to the lecturer. Mr. Chadwick was introduced by Ernst F. Heyd, first reader, M. H. Lincicome, and George F. Towne, in turn. Mr. Heyd spoke in part as follows:—

The chief mission of Jesus Christ was as the Wayshower. For three centuries or more after the close of Jesus' earthly career the way was kept marked by his disciples and followers through the healing of the sick and the reforming of the sinner. Then the way began to grow dim, and was finally lost in isms, theologies, and materialistic theories. But with the Bible as her compass, Mrs. Eddy set out to find, and did find, the path trod by Jesus, which had been lost to mankind for so many centuries. With the unselfishness of true love, and that the way might never again be lost, our Leader made a chart thereof, and this can be found in the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
