Sunday School Notes and Comments
A teacher in one of the more advanced classes of the Sunday school discovered that many of the older pupils knew little about the important facts of our Leader's life: as, for instance, when she discovered Christian Science, under what circumstances, and when she gave the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," to the world; and the teacher was sometimes asked by a pupil why Mary Baker Eddy is called the Founder as well as the Discoverer of Christian Science.
In seeking guidance that she might be explicitly obedient to the Manual of The Mother Church by Mrs. Eddy regarding teaching in the Sunday school, she studied and found applicable this direction (Art. XX, Sect. 3): "The instruction given by the children's teacher must not deviate from the absolute Christian Science contained in their textbook."
Since then, she occasionally makes it a point to ask the pupils in her class when Mrs. Eddy discovered Christian Science (see Science and Health, p. 107), to speak of her prayerful three years' searching of the Scriptures (ibid., p. 109) and of the year 1875, when the first edition of the textbook was published, and to call attention to Matthew 9, the chapter which Mrs. Eddy was reading when she first glimpsed the Christ-method of healing, as exemplified by the master Christian.
