The Lectures

Montclair, New Jersey (First Church).

Lecturer: Prof. Hermann S. Hering; introduced by Carrington Howard, who said:—

From the beginning of time people mentally awake have been eager to know about, and make their own, whatever would make life for them and those dear to them happier, freer from trouble and sickness, and fuller of the good things of life. Christian Scientists are finding through their study and application of the teachings of Christian Science, a satisfactory solution to problems of so many different kinds, of health, of business, of disposition, that it has proved to be the veritable way of salvation for them. I was recently in a Christian Science Reading Room in the heart of New York's downtown business district, and I picked up a little book containing a compilation of newspaper editorials written about sixteen years ago (Editorial Comments on the Life and Work of Mary Baker Eddy). As I read the comments and tributes written by these independent thinkers from one end of our country to the other, I realized as never before the extent to which Mrs. Eddy was given credit for affecting the thinking of the world. This effect was not the result of an emotional wave such as may follow in the wake of a great preacher, but, rather, the result of the "still small voice" of Truth, revealed in the Bible in the light of Mrs. Eddy's teachings. This "still small voice" came to the individual consciousness of one person and then another and made life for them more free, and more full, and religion more vital.
