The Lectures

Milton, Mass. (auspices The Mother Church).—John W. Doorly, lecturer; introduced by Miss M. Ethel Whitcomb, who said in part:—

One Sunday morning more than twenty years ago I went to the original Mother Church in Boston, burdened physically by diseases which no physician could relieve, burdened mentally by dis-ease, even anguish, because I could not find in any church answers which satisfied my heart, to the questions: What is God? and, What is the purpose of man's life? That morning Mrs. Eddy addressed the audience. In childlike sweetness and spiritual strength she voiced the glad tidings of Christian Science, and in that wonderful hour I found God. I left the church awakened to a new sense of life, its sacredness and its possibilities, and eagerly began the study of the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. It not only unlocked the Scriptures, but unlocked treasures of health and joy and inspiration that I never dreamed were here, and each day during these years it has revealed to me new views of God and man.
