The question is often asked, "Of what should an introduction to a Christian Science lecture consist?" An introduction is an important auxiliary to the lecture; and, according to the custom which now obtains in our movement, it is given by a Christian Scientist, usually by one connected with the church under whose auspices the lecture is given.

An introduction should be brief and dignified, and naturally it should be given in prose, not in poetic expression. A few general remarks on the subject of Christian Science are suitable. The introducer may relate a helpful personal experience, which always has an appeal to the audience. A word about The Christian Science Board of Lectureship, established by Mrs. Eddy and consisting of men and women who are experienced Christian Scientists, of whom the lecturer now being introduced is one, is in order.
