The Lectures

London, England (First Church).—The following introductory remarks were made by Miss Hetty E. A. Dixon at a Christian Science lecture by Frank Bell:—

Christian Science is lifting up a great ideal in the world to-day by giving it a concept of God that will ultimately draw all men to Him and towards each other, however divergent their starting points may be—a concept of the love of God and of man's relation to Him that will be a sure anchorage in these unstable times, and which will heal the sick in body and mind,—which will, in fact, free mankind from every ill "that flesh is heir to." This ideal may be compared to the sun and its rays. The farther these rays are from the sun the more divergent they are from each other, but as they approach the sun they are closer to each other.

So it is with all those who are striving to gain, through the teachings of Christian Science, a better understanding of God and His love for man. The nearer we approach the ideal truth, and the greater its influence for good on our characters and in our lives, the nearer we are drawn to each other in brotherly love and comprehensive sympathy. Nor will this influence be confined to individuals. It will make itself felt in governments and in the affairs of men, until finally all peoples and nations will be drawn together in the common bond of the knowledge of the one God.
