The Lectures

Hoquiam, Washington (First Church).—The following introductory remarks were made by Mrs. Myrtle Cars-well Collins when introducing Ezra W. Palmer, a Christian Science lecturer, to his audience:—

About a century ago a learned Christian wrote these words, which may well be repeated in this age: "The love of one another was to be the mark and seal of Christians. It was to distinguish them from other men, so that those who were not Christians—looking upon their lives, and seeing them free from the jealousies, the quarrels, the violent and bad passions of other men—might confess that God was in them of a truth, and that so heavenly a fruit could only come from nothing else than the tree of Life Eternal." Christian Science is often called a religion of Love, and rightly so, since its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy, writes on page113 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science, is Love." Love, a synonym for God, brings a clear sense of God as Mother, as well as Father. As one earnestly goes about the study and application of this practical religion, he finds himself being enfolded in this tender Mother-love, which supplies his needs, soothes his heartaches, and heals his diseases. Then this one, refreshed, goes forth to tell others of these everlasting arms of Love, to lead them into this haven of rest. He has begun to demonstrate the words, "On earth peace, good will toward men." Is not this the peace for which all people and nations are striving? This is indeed the peaceful brotherhood wherein all mankind may recognize one Father-Mother God.
