A Joyous Occasion

THE announcement read from the desk of a Christian Science church or society that a free lecture on Christian Science is to be delivered in the community by a member of the Board of Lectureship of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, is the heralding of a joyous occasion for Christian Scientists and for those bowed down from a false sense of sin, sorrow, sickness, or supply, and who are now turning thitherward seeking deliverance from or a way out of their seeming bondage.

Christian Scientists know from personal experience that the statements of the truth in these lectures are bringing this healing message to the world—bringing it to suffering humanity today in a clear, concise manner that is understandable and convincing. These lectures are explaining the truth that has comforted and healed untold numbers.

In speaking of the Board of Lectureship, Mrs. Eddy writes (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 125): "I have only to dip my pen in my heart to say, All honor to the members of our Board of Lectureship connected with The Mother Church. Loyal to the divine Principle they so ably vindicate, they earn their laurels. History will record their words, and their works will follow them." These lectures are given in accordance with the command of the Master, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature;" for a Christian Science lecture is the healing message of Truth and Love to all mankind, everywhere. The Psalmist said, "He sent his word, and healed them;" and the "word" or message of a Christian Science lecture will be received and find its way, its place in receptive consciousness, accomplishing that for which it was sent; for mortal mind has no power to obstruct its reception or to keep away those ready to receive Truth's message, no matter what the claim of counterattraction may be.
