PREPARING FOR A LECTURE

The inspirational meetings which a branch church holds before a Christian Science lecture is given, are very helpful in alerting members to the necessity for vigorous and consecrated thinking in regard to the coming event. At one such meeting the members were asked by the chairman of the lecture committee to ponder prayerfully the purpose of the lecture as a Christian missionary, as a herald of Christian healing, and as a Christly peacemaker. The members were also asked to give prayerful thought to their individual part in the preparatory work.

As the writer considered these thought-inspiring topics, these familiar words of the prophet came to her spontaneously and repeatedly (Isa. 52:7): "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!" In this exquisite passage the poet-prophet pictures a messenger jubilantly proclaiming the good news of salvation for his people and the establishment of God's kingdom. This surely is the mission of a Christian Science lecture.
