The Lectures

Nottingham, England (First Church).—John W. Doorly, lecturer; introduced by Lady Maud Rolleston, who said in part:—

In the Bible we are told that at the beginning of creation "the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters," and that afterward God sent His first message and commandment to the world in the words: "Let there be light"—and we know there was light. That light was independent of the sun, or the moon, or the stars; for their creation had not as yet been revealed. Surely it was the light that shines through all eternity and is coexistent with God. Throughout the ages there have been wise men and women who have perceived this light and have brought through its presence beauty and joy into the dark places of the earth. Once, above all, the light was manifested in perfect purity, in undimmed brilliancy, in Christ Jesus. Now, in these latter days once more has the light been shown to us by one of the most faithful followers of the Christ—this time by a woman, Mary Baker Eddy, who, in the face of almost insuperable trials and difficulties, gave to the world that wonderful book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the study of which has brought health and peace and happiness to thousands of her fellow creatures.
