Learning Obedience in the Sunday School

THE pupils in Christian Science Sunday Schools will be the future active workers in our movement. They are receiving in the Sunday school the training and preparation needed for carrying on this great work. As an essential part of this training, they are instructed by the Sunday school teachers how to overcome error and to claim, cultivate, and use the true, Godlike qualities which belong to man, as the reflection of God.

One of these important qualities is obedience. Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in an article entitled "Obedience" in "Miscellaneous Writings" (pp. 116—120), has very thoroughly elucidated this subject. The workers in a Christian Science Sunday School cannot study this article too diligently. The high standard of obedience which Mrs. Eddy holds up for students of Christian Science is in accordance with that expressed by Paul when he speaks of "bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ."
