The Lectures

W. R. Givens, editor of the Kingston Daily Standard, in introducing Virgil O. Strickler, who lectured on Christian Science, said in part:—

I myself am not a Christian Scientist, and I have no doubt that there are others in this audience who are not. But though this be, we all of us must recognize the wonderful growth of Christian Science and the equally wonderful work it has done and is doing. It has reached into all the world with its churches by the hundreds and its followers by the thousands upon thousands. When I was in Boston recently and attended a service there at The Mother Church, I was greatly impressed with the vast crowd who thronged that magnificent edifice. They were cultured, intelligent, refined, prosperous people, and seeing them, one could not but be impressed with the fact that they were no faddists or followers of a mere cult, but were people of position and standing, who not only had the courage of their convictions but were supremely happy in them.
