The Lectures

St. Louis, Mo. (First Church).—The following remarks of Mrs. Letticia Parker Williams were made prefatory to a lecture by Miss Margaret Murney Glenn:—

That must have been a very happy throng which followed Jesus about the streets of Palestine. We are told that when they saw his works of healing they rejoiced and glorified God, and said among themselves, "God hath visited his people." And now we to-day, who are learning of the Science that lay behind those great works, know that God has never left His people, that He has never been absent from them; that the loving presence whom Jesus called "the Father," that "doeth the works," is round about every one of us all the time; that His law to each one of us is the law of life and strength and purity and unfailing good. We understand now why, when the seventy returned to Jesus rejoicing because through his teachings they too had been able to heal, he said to them, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven;" for as our consciousness becomes filled with the Christ, Truth, we find that our sorrows and sicknesses and sins fall away into nothingness. And we, too, are filled with joy because we know that if we cast out evils "by the Spirit of God, then," as Jesus expressed it, "the kingdom of God is come" nigh unto us.
