The Lectures

It is possible for an intelligent student of a given subject to express in a single lecture conclusions that have been derived from years of application; and it may be done with such clearness as to be of great benefit to the beginner, who may lack the time to gain his information from books. Moreover, the lecture is particularly useful in putting an end to popular misconceptions by giving correct information, in removing misapprehension by defining the actual and the real.

That which soonest reaches the heart of mankind is, however, the Christ-healing. It is indeed the foundation of all true building. With the work of healing once established in a community, there follows in natural sequence the superstructure, or second stage of growth, which involves the organization of the society or church. To protect the organization there is need of instruction and correction, and the lecture is an essential factor in this work. Thus the third period of development in the work of Christian Science properly includes the lecture, which instructs, corrects, and points to "the Christ mode of understanding Life" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 248).
