The Lectures

An interesting lecture on Christian Science was given at City Hall before a large audience, the speaker being Bicknell Young. The introductory remarks of Mayor Barrett, who presided, were as follows:—

While I am not a Christian Scientist, I am free to say that I have taken a considerable interest in the work, as some of my nearest relatives and friends are members of this church. I have already accepted an invitation from them to attend the services in the near future, a promise which I certainly intend to fulfil, hoping by so doing that I may get a better and clearer understanding of the teaching, which I have seen exemplified throughout our city with such good results. I believe this is the era of free thought, when the wishes and will of intelligent people cannot be denied; and if Scientists utilize the spiritual sense which God has given us all, not only with benefit and help to themselves but for all humanity, certainly no one can say that their work has been in vain. I believe the time has come when all feel that the Christian Science church is a fact which is here to stay. As proof of this, one has only to recognize the gigantic gain in membership which it has attained during the past few years.—Daily Times.
