Sunday School Notes and Comments

An interesting study developed in a class when it was noticed that the pupils (about fourteen years of age) found it difficult to find the books of the Bible. A few minutes were set aside each Sunday for the purpose of familiarizing them with the names and order of the books. First, each Sunday they were given an assignment of a column, as arranged on page 4 of the Authorized King James Version. After two columns had been committed to memory, a little drill was given in which they all took part—a book was named, and each one found it as quickly as possible. This became more interesting as they knew more of the books. Finally, they were able to find any book in the Old or New Testament easily.

A situation which is quite common is this: A pupil who is being taught the truth in Sunday school is not being instructed in anything that seriously conflicts with what he is being taught elsewhere, until he enters high school. Then, however, the natural sciences begin to be part of the school curriculum, and continue as a rule during high school and on through college. Parents and Sunday school teachers often notice the effects of the latter teaching, and long to be able to offset it, for it almost always seems to result in a measure of confusion for the pupil.
