Introductions to Lectures

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (The Mother Church, noonday lecture).

Lecturer: Arthur P. De Camp; introduced by Mrs. Elisabeth F. Norwood, who said:—

You have paused in your busy day's work to come here to learn about Christian Science, which teaches how men may turn to God for guidance in human affairs. Christian Science points men to the Scriptures, where in his Sermon on the Mount Jesus said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." The truth of this statement has been proved many times. I know a business man, a Christian Scientist, who on opening his mail one day, found a circular letter which read thus: "Are you in business to make money?" At this point he tore up the letter, saying to himself that he was not in business to make money, but to serve God and his fellow man and to heal the difficulties which he encountered. With this unselfish motive, with the desire to seek first "the kingdom of God, and his righteousness," this man became successful in business; he became successful financially, in human achievement, and in leading many to the truth which Jesus taught. By fulfilling the condition of the Scripture just quoted, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness," he of necessity reaped the promised reward.
