Item of Interest
Many Christian Scientists are aware that 1934 is the year in which the triennial Normal class of the Board of Education is taught. Applications for this class may be sent to the Board of Education at 107 Falmouth Street during the year in which the class is taught, preferably well in advance of its convening in December. Those who wish to apply and who believe that they can fulfill the requirements set forth in the Church Manual, particularly Article XXIX, Section 2, and who desire to become teachers of Christian Science, may request the necessary application blanks. That is all that is required as a preliminary step. The Normal class is taught for the purpose of preparing and certifying teachers. Applicants are chosen because of a need for teachers in their immediate fields, and because they qualify as perhaps the most promising applicants available there.
An interesting letter was recently received from one who, a few years ago, recommended an applicant for the Normal class, but who now feels that in doing so he did not ponder deeply enough his duty to those concerned, and who further feels that in future he will better fulfill this responsibility. Referring to the grave duty which he says "devolves on one recommending individuals" to this class, he is sure that he will seek, not human reason and personal attachment to guide his perception of character and qualifications, but, rather, divine wisdom. It is indeed a grave responsibility that rests upon the Board of Education, upon the indorsers, and upon the applicant who undertakes to become a teacher of Christian Science. The applicant needs to be teachable and to know how to teach; he needs spiritual preparedness, wisdom, absolute reliance upon God, love for humanity. It is well for the Field to understand that applications are welcomed from those who are ready for this work, even though, because of the limitation of the class to thirty members, but a few out of the many worthy applicants may be chosen.
