Results of Sunday School Experience

Although I have had a number of proofs of the healing power of Christian Science in regard to physical ailments, I am especially grateful to God for having directed our Leader to establish the Sunday school for us, in connection with our church services, because it was here that the seed of truth was sown in my consciousness. It had been my privilege to attend the Christian Science Sunday school for some twelve or thirteen years; but not until later, when I had the beautiful experience of teaching there with some of those who taught me, did I realize that I, indeed, had had a rare opportunity.

Perhaps some who have not had the advantage of the instruction given in a Christian Science Sunday school, may be tempted to regret that such was not their experience, and to think that had they received this instruction they would now be better Christian Scientists. Such an arguement is merely a suggestion of the tempter, because the various activities of the Christian Science movement and its authorized teachers afford ample opportunities for progress; for, as Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with key to the Scriptures" (p. 462), "self-denial, sincerity, Christianity, and persistence alone win the prize, as they usually do in every department of life." Mere attendance at Sunday school will no more make one a Christian Scientist than will mere attendance at a Christian Science church. In both cases progress rests entirely with the individual, and activity, study, application, and practice are essential.
