The Lectures

Barrington, Ill. (Society).—John Randall Dunn, lecturer; introduced by Earl Virden, Sr., who said in part:—

Before I had any intimate knowledge of Christian Science, I had the hackneyed opinion that Christian Scientists were an overzealous class of fanatics who worshiped Mrs. Eddy, and I frankly admit that one Sunday morning I left my home and went to one of their churches in Chicago to get a good look at these people to see what they were like. Very much to my surprise I noticed going into this church a lot of representative people of Chicago, men whom I knew—some of them my friends. I was prompted to remain to the close of the service in order that I might take another look at them. The next Sunday I ventured into the church and enjoyed the simple and interesting service. On Wednesday evening I attended a testimony meeting and came away with the impression that Christian Scientists were either the greatest prevaricators I had ever heard or Christian Science was the most wonderful thing in all the world. I was prompted to investigate it further, so procured a copy of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and some of the other writings by Mrs. Eddy, and looked into the subject a little more.
