Sunday School Notes and Comments

Several years ago the writer, on becoming a member of a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, found herself resisting the responsibility of teaching assigned to her. Recognizing the argument as one that would rob her of the blessing such a privilege surely brings, she sought through study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook an enlargement of her understanding of Church, obedience, gladness, and Love.

On page 174 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy she found her answer in the words, "Whoever opens the way in Christian Science is a pilgrim and stranger, marking out the path for generations yet unborn." Immediately she saw how vital is every effort made to instruct even the youngest pupil in a Christian Science Sunday School. She discerned many possibilities she had never recognized before, and received, a new meaning of our Master's words, "This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." With joyous gratitude for her privilege, the student then realized she had in this service a definite and essential obligation in helping to forward the Cause of Christian Science.
