The Sunday School

One of the most helpful activities in which members of The Mother Church and of branch churches can be engaged is that of teaching in the Sunday school. Obviously it is of greatest importance that the children in our Sunday schools should be taught correctly, wisely, and well; for upon them will devolve the task of carrying forward the Christian Science movement. And they are entitled to the very best mental and spiritual preparation for the great duty and privilege which will be theirs.

Those who are so fortunate as to be teachers and workers in our Sunday school have a wonderful opportunity and a sacred obligation. An editorial writer in a daily newspaper has said, in substance, that the Sunday school is not merely an adjunct of a church, but in his opinion one of the most important of all church activities. Children are coming in large numbers to our Sunday schools, and we should see that they are taught rightly about the way of Life everlasting and are shown how to walk, safely and securely and courageously, in that way.
