Teaching in the Sunday School

"Ah, children, you are the bulwarks of freedom, the cement of society, the hope of our race!" This statement by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, on page 9 of "Pulpit and Press," is arresting the attention of many today. While men are concerned about our "bulwarks of freedom," seeking protection in material defense, it is important to realize that a strong safeguard to liberty has been provided in the Christian Science Sunday School through the education of the children concerning spiritual reality.

Teachers in the Sunday school recognize the obligation and opportunity that lie before them in taking up this work. Knowing that preparedness is an important line of defense, they should look well to see whether they are spiritually equipping themselves to carry on this great work. Like Nehemiah, in his task of rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem, they need to be alert lest the Sanballats and Tobiahs of aggressive mental suggestion gain their ear in an attempt to thwart their efforts and induce them to cease from doing the work.
