Over Twenty

At a time when one student of Christian Science was earnestly seeking more light in order to be a better reflection of the Christ, Truth, in the Sunday school work of a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, a young friend, who had for many years been a pupil in a Christian Science Sunday School, appealed for help in the working out of a problem. In helping this friend so much good unfolded that the writer wishes to take advantage of the opportunity the periodicals give us to broadcast good over the land.

In doing the work, a careful study of the Manual of The Mother Church, as it relates to Sunday school work, was taken up, and attention was attracted and held to these words from Article XX, Section 1: "No pupil shall remain in the Sunday School of any Church of Christ, Scientist, after reaching the age of twenty." It was recalled that this young friend, who had but recently reached the age of twenty, had been obedient to this charge of our Leader. The above words remained fixed in thought, however; and a careful study of the whole section only served to make it clearer that the problem in hand demanded the application of that particular part of the section above quoted. Use of it was made, and its availability evidenced immediate unfoldment, thus again proving the truth of Mrs. Eddy'd words in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 504), "The rays of infinite Truth, when gathered into the focus of ideas, bring light instantaneously."
