The Lectures

Boston, Mass. (The Mother Church).—Dr. John M. Tutt, lecturer; introduced by Bicknell Young, First Reader, who said:—

It is a special pleasure and privilege again to welcome an audience to a lecture on Christian Science here in The Mother Church. At these recurring seasons it is well perhaps for us to remember that the object of giving these lectures is not that of mere propaganda. We are not as a body of people primarily engaged in striving to add to our numbers. We are giving these lectures because we unselfishly desire to have mankind learn of the Science of Life and be at peace. Through the study of Christian Science we have come to recognize that the kingdom of heaven is man's natural state of existence. All the harmony which belongs to that kingdom exists now and here as an inevitable phenomenon of the divine Principle, Love, which Mary Baker Eddy, in her discovery of Christian Science, revealed to the world. To demonstrate this divine Principle we must have enlightenment. It follows, therefore, that enlightenment is the need of mankind. Pure spiritual enlightenment constituted the Mind "which was also in Christ Jesus." To find that God's universe is all right and that there is no other universe, and then to prove this fact step by step by demonstration, is the way of Christian Science.
