Going On from the Sunday School

AS a pupil in the Christian Science Sunday school nears the age of twenty, he realizes that this particular phase of his activity as a Christian Scientist is about to close. He has enjoyed the association with other young folk who are his classmates, and the encouragement and guidance of his teacher have been inspiring. The suggestion may come to him that without this weekly session he will have to rely entirely on himself, with no specific ties to keep him awake and working.

This thought of loss and sense of regret need not for a moment be admitted. Instead, there should be the realization that he has an opportunity to enter a new and important field of usefulness. All his training in the Sunday school has been a preparation for this new experience. He may have begun then with such a simple task as the memorizing of a commandment or a beatitude. From this he went on, step by step, to the thoughtful study of the Bible Lessons from the Christian Science Quarterly. These he discussed under the guidance of earnest teachers. This work has been along the line of developing his clear thinking, his moral sense, and his spiritual alertness.
