The Lectures

The Christian Science Monitor

Boston, U.S.A. (The Mother Church).—Frank Bell, lecturer; introduced by Bicknell Young, who said in part:—

I deem it a special privilege, in behalf of the officers and vast membership of this church, to welcome this audience assembled to hear a lecture upon Christian Science. There was never a time when the world so generally recognized the futility of human theories and the consequent necessity of divine facts. While this is the most interesting era in human history, it is also the most anxious. Happenings which formerly required years or centuries now appear, pass, and are forgotten in as many days. History is no longer chronological, but purely eventual. It would almost seem that we are entering upon that experience described in terms of unapproachable eloquence in the book of Revelation, ending with the words, "There should be time no longer."

In a passage equally striking, Mrs. Eddy, in her book, 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 125), indicates that the fuller demonstration of Christian Science would reveal an all-inclusive consciousness as the primal fact of creation; and in concluding this passage she adds, "The astronomer will no longer look up to the stars,—he will look out from them upon the universe; and the florist will find his flower before its seed."
