The Lectures

Clarence C. Eaton, a member of the Christian Science board of lectureship, delivered a lecture Friday evening [May 29] on Christian Science, under the auspices of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Mass., in the church edifice. John C. Lathrop, first reader, introduced the lecturer, and said:—

It is observed that as the mission of Christian Science to humanity becomes better understood, and as the thoughts of mortals become prepared to receive it, this Science is embraced by a steadily increasing number with a whole-hearted and joyous acceptance, which assures ultimately the destruction of all human discords and the solution of every mortal problem. The world is restlessly and eagerly seeking to realize the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man, and to escape the persistent punishment of the ills and errors of the flesh. It finds in Christian Science an orderly, simple, and demonstrable system of Christian metaphysics, which, when understood, is proven to be the way to master these longstanding difficulties, to satisfy every good aspiration, and to meet all practical needs. Christian Science is a subject, therefore, which should engage the closest and most patient attention of all thinking persons.
