The Lectures

Frank Bell of Harrisburg, Pa., a member of the Christian Science board of lectureship, delivered a lecture on Christian Science Friday evening [Oct. 27] under the auspices of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass., in the church edifice, Falmouth, Norway, and St. Paul Streets. He was introduced by John C. Lathrop, temporary first reader of The Mother Church, who said:—

Christian Science is no longer generally considered a new and untried religious belief. The year 1916 marks a complete half century since Mrs. Eddy discovered the divine Principle of Christian Science and the spiritual rules which demonstrate this Principle in the destruction of all error. These fifty years have witnessed marvelous changes in human thought, particularly regarding science, theology, and medicine. That Christian Science is the impersonal spiritual leaven of Truth which Jesus said would come to guide "into all truth," and therefore that it will turn, overturn, and destroy all material beliefs, thereby producing permanent harmony, health, and happiness in human affairs, is the conscientious and grateful conviction of many people. The lecture we will hear this evening is intended to elucidate this subject and to correct any false impressions which may have been formed thereupon.—The Christian Science Monitor.
