The Lectures

Col. William E. Fell delivered a lecture Friday evening [March 5] under the auspices of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Mass., in the church edifice, at Falmouth, Norway, and St. Paul streets. H. Cornell Wilson, first reader, introduced the lecturer. Mr. Wilson said:—

In extending to the public an invitation to hear a lecture on Christian Science it is the purpose of this church correctly to present the subject. The world today admits that Christian Science heals the sick, and it is the intention that this lecture shall explain briefly how Christian Science healing is accomplished.

It is recorded that the well-loved Phillips Brooks once said, "I can prove that the Bible is inspired, because it inspires me." Just so Christian Scientists can say that they prove that Christian Science is the spiritual revelation of Truth, inasmuch as it spiritualizes their thoughts and through intelligent recourse to the true God secures freedom from the bondage of disease, sin, and limitation of every kind. It is because, in the words of the Master, the fields "are white already to harvest," but "the laborers are few," that Christian Scientists feel profoundly moved to carry the message of this divine Science lovingly to all who are ready to hear.
