The Lectures

Scarborough, Yorkshire, England (Society).—Introducing a Christian Science lecturer, Mr. Stanley M. Sydenham said, in part:—

As an indication of the changing views of the medical profession toward health and disease it is interesting to note that last year the University of Edinburgh established, as an addition to its medical school, a chair of psychiatry,—instruction in the employment of mental means of healing, as opposed to the treatment of disease by purely material methods. At the Lambeth Conference a committee of between thirty and forty bishops was appointed to consider the report upon the subject of Christian Science; and although the findings in their report showed how completely they misunderstood our point of view, it is obvious that they were impressed by the healing in Christian Science, for they passed a resolution requesting the Archbishop of Canterbury to appoint a committee "to consider and report as early as possible upon the use with prayer of the laying on of hands, of the unction of the sick, and other spiritual means of healing." The Bishop of St. Albans, Dr. Furse, at a meeting in London said: "Ideas rule the world, and the primary business of the church is to make men think rightly." Christian Science reveals the fact that right thinking is possible to each individual to the extent that he obeys the injunction of the apostle Paul: "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus."
