The Work of the Sunday School

THE argument concerning the backwardness of so-called problem children cannot be accepted by the teacher in the Christian Science Sunday School. This argument comes from the evidence of the physical senses, which, so far as the real man is concerned, is false in every respect. Inharmony must be seen as impersonal, in order to be destroyed. If error seems to be manifested by individuals, this does not make it part of their real selfhood. God's children are spiritual, held in the uninterrupted harmony of Soul. God's presence cannot be invaded or disturbed. God is everywhere; error is nowhere.

In the Sunday school, as well as in every other activity of The Mother Church and its branches, we must learn to correct the false evidences of mortal mind with the truth of being, rejoicing that error is always a false claim, not the truth. The wise teacher turns definitely from personality, and uplifts his thought to seek a higher and holier understanding of God's presence and power, and of man in His image and likeness. He does not accept the belief of so-called problem children, but sets about to dissolve impersonal error with the understanding of divine Love.
