Are we ready for the lecture?

From the October 1981 issue of The Christian Science Journal


What happens prior to a Christian Science lecture? How do church members prepare themselves? Their community? Human consciousness, left to itself, may present more of an obstacle than a transparency for Christ, Truth. Thought may be congested with fear, self-righteousness, or self-love; temporarily walled in by willful sin; or asleep in satisfaction with matter.
