Sunday School and Church

THE definite aim of the Sunday school is to promote progressive spiritual unfoldment within the consciousness of the pupil. Among the necessary and distinct factors upon which this is dependent are these two. One is the parents' cooperation at home, which aids in bringing about better classwork. If the parents see that the child studies his lessons at home, they are encouraging him to make his daily life express God's spiritual qualities. The other is the application by the pupil of the simple truths of Christian Science as taught in the Sunday school.

There are problems and obstacles to be overcome in the child's experience. By the application of what he has learned and understood he is able to meet and conquer them. A definite participation in the work of the class is the result of previous preparation; through it each pupil makes a definite contribution to the lessons, whether in the primary or in the advanced classes. This active participation on the part of the pupil during the class period and in the opening exercises makes for increased opportunities to grasp the fundamentals of Christian Science and prepares for future church activities.
