Sunday School Notes and Comments
The experience of a young woman who was given a class of ten-and eleven-year-old boys to teach may be of interest to Christian Science Sunday School teachers. She had prepared her lesson for the first Sunday morning, but found it difficult to get the boys' attention. They wanted to talk about other things. She knew the fault was not wholly theirs; that it was partly hers, because, she thought, she had failed to put the lesson before them in a sufficiently interesting way. She went home much discouraged, thinking she would ask that a more experienced teacher be appointed. Then the thought came to her that whatever work was given her, God would enable her to do. She knew then that she must go on, so she humbly asked for guidance.
The next Sunday morning, at the beginning of the lesson period, it was proposed that an analysis be made of an ideal Christian Science Sunday School class. This ideal class was found to be perfect in deportment, perfect in application; in fact, perfect in all ways. That being the case, the boys decided it was their duty to demonstrate the truth of perfection. They chose "Perfection" as their class word, and "A Perfect Class" as their motto. Thereafter, there was almost perfect attention. In fact, so much interest was shown that it was not uncommon, when it was time for the closing exercises, to hear the exclamation, "Already?" The boys rarely missed Sunday school and were seldom tardy. They sat upright in their chairs during class; they faced the desk during the singing of the hymns, then quietly closed their Hymnals, and after the closing hymn held them until "the scientific statement of being," as found on page 468 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, was read, and Sunday school dismissed.
A right foundation was laid for these boys, and wherever their work may take them in the future, they will carry with them the benefit of this experience.
