The Lectures

The Hague, Holland (First Church).—Introducing John J. Flinn, a Christian Science lecturer, to his audience, Mrs. Helene Jansen spoke as follows:—

If ever, surely now, the world is in great need of a better understanding of the ever present, omnipotent God, who is Love,—in need of a religion which is not only a beautiful theory, but practical, demonstrable Science, whose laws are based on unchanging divine Principle. Christian Science has come to bring to poor, harassed humanity all these blessings. Our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," makes it very plain to the earnest student that man, like the prodigal son, has only to come to himself, has to learn to understand the unchanging relations between God and man, the creator and His creation, the Father and His son; and in consequence he will experience, as Paul says, "that we are the children of God: and if children, then heirs," heirs of all the gifts of God's love. It is with a sense of great gratitude that I recall my own experience of being healed twenty-three years ago of a complaint of fifteen year's duration, in one day's reading of Science and Health. This book opened my eyes to this wonderful truth. I knew nothing about Christian Science, and had never met a Scientist; but when I read I knew that my longing to get a better understanding of God and His nature had been met; and this new light dawning in my consciousness came "with healing in his wings," as the Bible says. A former Christian Science lecturer at The Hague once said: "Not one here present will leave this hall the same as he came, for he shall have heard the Word of Truth, and that Word never returns void."
