The Lesson-Sermon

[Written Especially for Young People]

YOUNG Christian Scientists sometimes find it difficult to study the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly as faithfully as they should. In a crowded schedule of schoolwork and homework, social engagements, or business duties, there may seem to be little or no opportunity for such study. Again, one may have the time but may lack the inclination for this study. The young person in business possibly thinks that the hours when he is not employed should be entirely devoted to rest and recreation. Others may think the Lessons uninteresting or hard to understand.

All these arguments, and many more, mortal mind persistently and persuasively employs to keep the students of Christian Science from a daily, systematic study of the Lesson-Sermon. And why should this be so? Because this Lesson, as Mrs. Eddy points out in Article III, Section 1, of the Church Manual, is "a lesson on which the prosperity of Christian Science largely depends."
