The Lectures

Boston, U.S.A. (Second Church).—Remarks by Miss M. Ethel Whitcomb, introducing a Christian Science lecturer:—

It is such a joy to me to look into the faces of this audience, waiting to hear a lecture on Christian Science, because I know that many who are here will go away with a new star of hope shining in the heavens of their thought. One Sunday, many years ago, I sat waiting to hear Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, speak. I was a suffering, perplexed, and depressed young woman, suffering because physicans could not relieve the pain which had bound me from childhood; perplexed because ministers told me that God is Love, but that it is His will for man to suffer; depressed because I yearned with an overflowing heart to relieve tha burdens of humanity, yet could not find the way. In this attitude I waited that Sunday morning. With a humility and tenderness and spiritual insight that I had never before felt, Mrs. Eddy revealed to me a loving sense of the presence of our God, and of the healing Christ, as truly in our midst as in the days when Jesus walked with men.
