Sunday School Notes and Comments
Our Leader's letter in regard to teaching in the Christian Science Sunday School (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 230), is always a source of inspiration to those who are endeavoring to be of service as Sunday school teachers. In part it reads, "It is a joy to know that they who are faithful over foundational trusts, such as the Christian education of the dear children, will reap the reward of Rightness, rise in the scale of being, and realize at last their Master's promise, 'And they shall be all taught of God.'"
Here Mrs. Eddy points out that the Christian education of the children is a "foundational" trust, implying that we should be faithful in carrying out this trust, and that the reward to be gained from this right activity will be rich. With this spiritual fact ever before us, the temptations of the carnal mind, possibly arguing that we lack inspiration, joy, and consecration in our work, are silenced.
Holding to this fact, that teaching in the Christian Science Sunday School is a "foundational" trust, to which we are endeavoring to be faithful, and refusing to be mesmerized by any arguments of the serpent that would keep us from rising "in the scale of being," must logically bring forth an ever greater sense of unity and cooperation in our Sunday schools. Thus we go on to demonstrate, and to help the children to demonstrate, Mrs. Eddy's precious statement in "Unity of Good" (p. 21), "Individual consciousness in man is inseparable from good."
