The Lectures

Bicknell Young delivered a lecture expounding the Principle of Christian Science and describing the inspired work of Mrs. Eddy, at the Crown Theater. He was introduced by Mrs. Rosemary O. Anderson, who said:—

Although Christian Science is in large measure conceded to be demonstrable, scientific Christianity, and there is scarcely a community in this great country that is not the better for its beneficent influence, it still seems necessary to provide channels for public dissemination of its teachings.

Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Leader of Christian Science, the Founder and teacher of its spiritually scientific method of mental therapeutics, wisely foresaw the necessity for maintaining under the auspices of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, dependable sources for the teaching and promulgation of authentic Christian Science. Chief among these authorized channels is the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and her lesser writings, together with the many periodicals issued by The Christian Science Publishing Society; then there are the Sunday services and Wednesday evening meetings maintained by all Christian Science churches and societies, free reading-rooms, duly qualified teachers and practitioners, and the Christian Science board of lectureship.
