Our Lectures—An Appreciation
[From a letter in the Christchurch press, New Zealand]
Yesterday was a bright, sunny afternoon. I hesitated whether to stay outdoors or go indoors and hear a lecture on Christian Science. I decided on the latter, and found at the close that I had secured more sunshine than if I had stayed away. This lecture was one of the finest expositions of the purpose of life and the nature of the Supreme Being that I have ever heard. I do not belong to the Christian Science movement, and attended in a semicritical frame of mind, but I found nothing to conflict with my reason—nothing or requiring a strained attitude of mind to accept.
Many people are beginning to realize that what is wrong with humanity all over the world at the present time is individual wrong thinking. We entertain the most fantastic, antagonizing, destructive thoughts right through our daily life, but few there are who realize it. We each of us want some wholesome, clear concept of how and what to think, and the subject matter of this lecture fills that want. If, as I believe, the life of any one of us will positively be changed for the better by a renewing of the mind, then none of us should miss hearing this address—and this applies to clergy as well as laymen. . . . I came away from this lecture refreshed . . ., and judging from the way the audience gathered outside and chatted in a happy, neighborly way, everyone came out with the same feeling. There was no depression there, and anyone who can lift us out of the depression must be well worth hearing.
