The Lectures

Havana, Cuba (Society).—Mrs. Florence Brink Alarco made the following prefatory remarks at a Christian Science lecture by Geo. Shaw Cook:—

In the book of Proverbs we are told, "In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death." So we know that it is only by right thinking, right speaking, and right acting we are enabled to tread firmly in that pathway wherein there is no death. Christian Science points out the way.

I am a grateful witness to its healing power. Over twenty years ago I was healed of a disease said to be inherited, and from which no hope of release was given. Since then I have experienced other healings; for all of which I am deeply grateful. But the greatest blessing that Christian Science has brought to me is the understanding that God is not the author of sin, disease, and death, that He does not send trouble upon us as discipline. On page 494 of her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says, "It is not well to imagine that Jesus demonstrated the divine power to heal only for a select number or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good."
